About Us

Welcome to the office of First-Year Experience and Retention.

A word from our office...

Here in the Office of First-Year Experience & Student Retention we define success by each student who is able to connect meaningfully to their university experience in a way that helps them persist, and ultimately, to graduate. From the First-Year Experience, New Student Orientation, and Freshman Reading Program, to Early Alert, and many other programs, we believe the programs we administrate truly do lead to student success, resulting in greater student satisfaction and retention.

If you have a question or comment about any of our programs, please feel free to contact our staff.
