The First Year Experience
The First Year Experience (FYE) is a comprehensive program designed to help ease your transition into Mitchell College, set the foundation for your academic success and help you get connected to what is happening in and out of the classroom. Our team of advisors, mentors, professors and others helps you discover your personal strengths, build your toolbox to succeed and navigate the Mitchell journey that is distinctly yours! The FYE office is a great place to start with questions you might have about almost everything that goes on in your first year at Mitchell – from classes to the common read; from service opportunities to suggestions about what would make your experience even better.
Common Read: New students are invited to get acquainted with this year’s Common Read! The 2019 selection is Glimmer of Hope: How Tragedy Sparked a Movement by the founders of March for Our Lives. This book, published in 2018, is a collection of writings by students in Parkland, Florida who have been inspired to find their voice and channel their passion. As we explore this book through coursework and discourse during the first semester, students will be challenged to explore their own passions as together we explore what it means to…
FIND YOUR VOICE.
RESPECT THE VOICES OF OTHERS.
VALUE THE SPACE IN BETWEEN.
The book can be ordered from the Mitchell College online Bookstore or any favorite book seller. This is required reading for anyone enrolled in First-Year Seminar (FC 101) and/or Intro to College Writing (CW 101).
