Clark College First Year Experience (FYE)

FYE reason 12: Because Learning is a team sport.

Programs & Resources to support students in their first year


Welcome to First Year Experience (FYE), a collection of programs specially designed to help students who are new to Clark successfully navigate their first year of college.

We know college can be a challenging transition, requiring students to master new skills - study habits, accessing student services, managing course loads and financial aid, and trying to find a sense of community in a new environment. Clark established FYE to help ease that transition. Whether it's taking an introductory class that helps you learn how to succeed at Clark, connecting with a mentor who can keep you on the path toward your goals, or finding friends who are going through similar experiences, FYE has many opportunities for you to find the support you need to make the most of your college experience.
