Each semester many members of the University faculty teach First-Year Experience (FYE) courses. Check out the syllabi page to see who is teaching this semester. 

First-Year Experience Peer Mentors

In order to be part of the First-Year Experience (FYE) Peer Mentor Program, our FYE Peer Mentors must have successfully completed an FYE course, earned a minimum of 24 credit hours, are in good academic standing (3.0-grade point average minimum), and have participated in a rigorous training program. The mentors’ responsibilities include a commitment to the program for an entire academic year, participating in a training program during the summer, coordinating team building activities and fun events for their student group, helping students navigate the campus, and more.
