First Year Experience

Sometimes looking at the range of academic possibilities in college can feel a little bit like being hungry and standing in front of a buffet where everything looks good. Our First Year Experience program (FYE) is designed to help you sample some big ideas and connect with a broad range of topics in new ways. In the process, you'll likely take hold of the level of commitment and the quality of work that are necessary for your success in college.

All FYE courses will challenge you to read visual and literal texts more analytically, to give effective individual presentations, to strengthen your participation in small group discussions, and most of all, to reason and write with greater precision and clarity.
