First-Year Studies

First-Year Studies helps you transition to college life and paves the way for a successful first year.


FYS has developed a number of courses and programs just for first-year students. In addition to FYS 100, a required online course that takes place over the summer, we strongly encourage you to enroll in other first-year courses that take place during the fall and spring.

There is a course for everyone. Work with your advisor to decide which one is right for you.
