A Fresh Start
The first year of college is an important milestone in a student’s academic life. Whether it’s developing effective study habits or fostering relationships with professors and peers, what happens in that first year can impact academic and future professional success.
To support this transition, Sam Houston State University developed the First-Year Experience program (FYE); a comprehensive and coordinated approach to that important first year of college. Drawing on campus-wide resources, FYE provides academic and selected non-academic services dedicated to supporting a student’s transition into college that will lead, ultimately, to graduation.
