  • First-Year Experience Program

    Monroe College is nationally recognized for its outcomes and exceptional student-focused culture. Our faculty and staff are committed to helping our students thrive academically, personally, and professionally. 

    That journey begins with our First-Year Experience (FYE) program, a robust approach to providing freshmen with enhanced resources, services, and support to help them adjust to college life, navigate through the challenges and opportunities ahead of them, and ultimately stay on the path toward graduation. 

    From tutoring support and technological resources to social activities and special events, our FYE program is designed to help students grow as students, as young emerging professionals, and as members of the broader community.

    That starts with building relationships – with the College, with professors, with each other. 

    Staff and faculty chosen to be part of our multi-disciplinary FYE team have a proven track record of helping students achieve their goals. 

    They are motivational coaches.

    They are problem solvers.

    They are our freshmen’s strongest advocates on campus.  

    And they are relentless in pushing our students to believe in themselves and get to that stage at graduation.
