Learn about the FYE Program
Our programming emphasizes social connections, balance, and campus resources. Our annual calendar includes a dinner and discussion series, off-campus outings, student panels on getting involved, and more. All of our events are free and open to all students.
Attend Events & Win Prizes
First-year students earn FYE points throughout the year by attending and signing-in at FYE core programs and eligible events. Prizes include gift cards to the campus bookstore, Fojo Beans, Euphoria, and movie passes. We also host free raffles, finals week care package giveaways, and other fun giveaways throughout the year!
