FYS educates new students about the best ways to navigate college – both inside and outside the classroom. We work with students to identify their unique skills and give them the tools to achieve personal and academic goals. Most of all, we give students a place to study, laugh, vent, and plug into a strong network of friends. Benefits include:
- Weekly workshops
- One-on-one peer mentoring
- Access to Faculty Fellows
- Volunteer opportunities
