First Year Experience

The First Year Experience is designed to assist new students in acclimating, connecting, and adjusting to the college campus and experience. Through coursework and other opportunities to be involved on campus, students will become familiar with college resources and learn strategies for academic success. Students will also be introduced to the values and ethical principles of the College and encouraged to reflect on their role/responsibilities as college students. In your first year of college, there are new things to learn, new things to experience, lots of questions, and sometimes challenges to face. Your FYE 101 professor and the First Year Experience Coordinator are here to help.

Welcome to Farmingdale and welcome to your college experience!
