FYE logoMission

First Year Experience (FYE) is an office that creates a welcoming community for students in their transition to campus by engaging them in programs related to personal and academic growth, navigating campus resources, building meaningful connections with others, and prioritizing well-being.


All first-year students are engaged with a supportive, inclusive, vibrant campus community where they have the foundational skills and resources they need to thrive at the University of Michigan and beyond.
