Description

"Five years ago, Three Rivers Community College removed the First Year Experience (FYE) course from their plans of study and relegated it to academic ambiguity. The college recently brought back FYE as a 3-credit, required course for most associate degree programs. This hands-on workshop will outline FYE's evolution and ongoing challenges. Participants will engage in a number of activities to identify steps that can be taken at their institution to establish, re-establish, or strengthen their FYE course."
