My FYE is a living-learning community located in Hamlin Hall for undecided first-year students who are interested in exploring different academic majors and careers.
You'll live on the same residence hall floors, enroll in three courses together your first semester, and engage in several activities that promote the development of academic and social networks and support systems. By committing to the My FYE community agreement, you'll will be involved in creating your own experiences in the program.
Unique to My FYE, you'll work closely with an Academic Peer Mentor (APM). The APM is specifically chosen to help students connect in- and out-of-class experiences and assist with their overall adjustment to the university. Additionally, career and academic advisers, residence hall staff, and faculty members provide My FYE students with resources, programs and mentorship to aid them in developing and achieving their academic and career goals.
