First Year Engagement Program

The First Year Engagement Office (FYE) is dedicated to promoting the success of first-year students by enhancing student engagement on campus. We are available to assist students in locating UIW resources which will lead to their academic success. First-year students learn to understand, “you own your education”, which introduces self-responsibility and an awareness of the path to success!

Mentors and Orientation Leaders

We assist students with:

  • Understanding the value of time management and study skills to achieve academic success
  • Selection of a major
  • Development of sense of community through campus involvement
  • Identifying campus resources
  • Connection to a FYE peer mentor who will assist with their transition to UIW!

First-Year Student Success Tips!

  • Plan ahead.
  • Make connections.
