Signature Programs

These first year programs are held each year and are aimed at connecting students with the campus community, encouraging student involvement, and supporting academic engagement. Each semester FYE will host Seaux Stressed (during midterm exams) and an off-campus trip. The fall semester also features a trip to Baton Rouge's 13th Gate attraction and Fall Harvest social event. During the spring, we'll host a similar social and end-of-the-year recognition event for students.

Additionally, FYE offers ongoing programs with Bengal Bound, Student Success Series, STRIPES, Student Strategy Sessions, and Tiger Transition Team (T3).


Get your mind off of midterms and unwind with FYE. Join us each semester for a relaxing event with puppies, test strategies, yoga, etc. We'll help you de-stress and connect you with the academic resources you'll need to succeed.
