FLC First Year Engagement participants

First Year Engagement (FYE) supports students as they embark on their college journey. Students enroll in a college success class in the fall and a career development class in the spring. These classes provide students with the opportunity to develop college success skills and major and career exploration.

Program Benefits

  • FYE is designed to help students:
    • Gain awareness of campus resources and support services
    • Feel more connected, comfortable, and at home in the FLC community
    • Acquire academic and life skills to succeed in college
    • Reach their educational goals of earning a certificate or degree, and/or transferring to a university
  • FYE students are placed into learning communities with other first year students.
    • FYE students are guaranteed enrollment in FYE-designated class sections for the fall and spring semesters.
    • FYE faculty are committed to working with students and ensuring a quality experience in the learning community cohorts. Faculty provide referrals to tutoring, workshops, and other campus services as needed, while establishing a working relationship with FYE students.
  • Students in FYE are assigned a Student Ambassador who will provide guidance, connections to campus services, support, and encouragement throughout the first year on campus.
