First Year Experience

Time management, and independence jump to a different level altogether, and the choices you make early on will determine whether you will or will not be successful in your higher education endeavors. All of the affore-mentioned comments can raise a new student's anxiety level to points never before experienced - this is where we come in as First Year Experience (FYE) advisors. Research indicates that first year students do better when the feel connected to a faculty member, staff person, or administrator at the college they attend.
