FYE Student Advisory Board

FYE Student Advisory Board

The FYE Student Advisory Board, made up of students experiencing their first year and students recently out of their first year, will serve as liaison to the first year community, amplifying the needs of first year students and proposing program ideas that will address those needs.  The Advisory Board will attend approximately monthly meetings where they will review, react to, and provide feedback on FYE's program ideas, content, processes, and delivery modes.
