Since 1999, UConn's FYE program has offered courses and services that foster student success, development, transition, and leadership. Through our course offerings, first and second year students at the University study and engage in exploration, learning, and research in small 19 seat seminar sections.

FYE course offerings are taught by instructors drawn from departments and colleges throughout the university system  who are assisted by undergraduate peer mentors and graduate leaders, allowing our courses to become collaborative, community-based offerings for active and experiential learning.

Hello all! My name is Landon Bassett, and I am the Academic Achievement Center’s new STEM coach. As the STEM coach, I will be in the AAC office, Rowe 217, five days a week, ready to answer any of your math, science, and engineering questions. I attended UConn as both an undergraduate and a graduate student, receiving my master’s degree in chemical engineering this past August. Having spent my own time at UConn, I am quite familiar with all sorts of trials and tribulations that a STEM student might encounter in their curricula. #SuccessStartsHere #inspireuconn
