First Year Experience
FYE: For Parents
If you have a child or children at Western, know that FYE will help them have a great first year. The FYE program is coordinated by Associate Provost Dr. Nancy Parsons and a talented group of experienced faculty with a special interest in first-year students. With the full support of President Thomas and the WIU community, FYE team members provide a rich set of activities in and out of courses. Junior and senior Western students enhance the program by serving as peer mentors, providing even more support to new students.
Western's FYE program participates in the Foundations of Excellence project, giving us access to the latest national research on first-year students.
