First Year Experience
FYI: For Students
Let us help you make yourself successful!
First Year Experience (FYE) is here to help you during this exciting time. When you arrive on campus in the fall, you will be enrolled in an FYE-designated course. This is a content course (e.g., Psychology 100) that will count toward your degree.
In the FYE course, there will only be other freshmen (no more than 22.) You will experience an engaging pedagogical style, meet new people, and possibly make contacts that can last a lifetime!
You will also attend at least three co-curricular events outside the class. These activities will help you in networking, building friendships, making your experience what you want it to be.
Our "freshmen-only" lifestyle residence halls provide several seminars and learning experiences on topics that can help you focus on your strengths and address habits, attitudes, and beliefs. Some examples include time management, study skills, building a professional contact list.
Please review this web site to learn more about Western, Macomb, and the services both provide to you. We invite you to ask your FYE professor or peer mentor any questions you have about Western or your college experience.
