FYE Student Leadership
Every student enrolled in the First-Year Experience interacts with student Section Leaders and Team Leaders throughout the school-year. These leaders are familiar with the College of Liberal Arts and the University’s resources. They serve as mentors who are eager to share their own college experience with first-year students, to help aid in first-year success.
120 Section Leaders are involved in the First-Year Experience. Each Section Leader serves as a mentor to about 15 first-year students to ensure student success throughout both semesters. Section Leaders provide feedback on students’ weekly assignments, meet with students one-on-one periodically throughout the school-year, and provide resources to students via weekly emails. They are available to answer questions about a student’s first year, as well as direct students to appropriate on-campus resources that may better serve them. Having experienced the first year of college themselves already, they are knowledgable and excited to help make a lasting impression on the students in their section.
