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.
