Welcome to the First-Year Experience Program
The William Atwell Brown, Jr., and Mary Brown Vacin First-Year Experience (FYE) program focuses on first-year students and their transitions from high school to college. This program is designed to provide support and encouragement from a student's first day of orienation to the final day of the first year at Albion.
The FYE Program focuses on two main areas of transition: academic and social.
Through the FYE Program, first-year students are introduced to the liberal arts tradition and the rigors of academic excellence. The FYE Program helps students establish habits of mind and patterns of decision-making that will ensure achieving optimal success through a student's four years at Albion. The two major components of the FYE Program supporting first-year students' academic transition are the First-Year Seminars and the Richard M. Smith Common Reading Experience.
Since Albion College is a four-year residential college, first-year students are assisted with their social transitions by upper-class resident assistants and Student Affairs staff members. Programming and activities through the first-year living environments will take place through the FYE Residential Program Learning Strategies. The Learning Strategies will address issues such as study skills, time management, wellness, diversity, sustainability, and communication.
