With special programming, extra support, and lots of fun ways to get to know classmates, our four First Year Experience (FYE) Residence Halls are a popular freshman housing choice.
“One of the things that helped me during my freshman year was living in the First Year Experience buildings. I lived in Wilber,” said sophomore Katie Wood. “I made a lot of new friends, and it was great because they were going through the same thing that I was.”
The FYE team collaborates with the Residence Life department to offer special programming focused on the social and academic transition that freshmen make as they enter the college. Students who opt to live in Golding, Littell, Tobey and Wilber halls have the opportunity to meet more than 150 of their classmates, enjoy social activities, develop leadership skills and attend programs on topics ranging from choosing an academic major to negotiating roommate conflicts.
“A lot of the RA’s put on great programs that you can attend to get involved, and you can get involved with hall government. It just made a really great community for me,” said Katie, who is now showing the next batch of first-year students the ropes as a volunteer Orientation Leader.
