First Year Experience


The First Year Experience (FYE) is a comprehensive program designed to help ease your transition into Mitchell College, set the foundation for your academic success and help you get connected to what is happening in and out of the classroom. Through FYE you will encounter our best faculty, staff and students working together to introduce you to a wide range of new and exciting academic and co-curricular initiatives. The FYE office is a great place to start with questions you might have about almost everything that goes on in your first year at Mitchell - from classes to the common read, from service opportunities to suggestions about what would make your experience even better.
