What is FYE?

At Trinity we believe in a holistic approach to student learning, which is why we have developed the First-Year Experience (FYE) to help you acclimate both academically and socially to college.  Through an integrated curriculum that addresses the collegiate experience both in and out of the classroom, you will be given opportunities for intellectual, cognitive, and interpersonal growth.  Such growth will foster academic and personal success throughout your first-year at Trinity and beyond.

The FYE consists of curricular and co-curricular experiences designed to facilitate your transition from high school to college.  Fall New Student Orientation and on-going programs and activities will provide you with opportunities to make connections with peers, faculty, and staff within the Trinity community.  These connections serve as the foundation for academic success and help ensure that when you need support, you have a network of individuals to look to.
