What is the FYI Program?
FYI stands for "The First-Year Initiative," and is the type of popular living-learning community freshmen nationwide are choosing to live in. FYI blends living in a residence hall where half the students in the building are first-year students, with taking one or two courses in common during the fall semester.
What will I get out of FYI?
- Living with students you’ll recognize in class
- Developing a special rapport with instructors and other students
- Having a "Resident Mentor" peer advisor who’s been in FYI, right in your hall
- Leadership skills and lasting friendships!
