FYI (First-Year Institute) is a student-led leadership retreat that helps first-year students find their place on campus and make their initial year as successful as possible! The FYI program is run by student facilitators who are highly successful student leaders in their junior and senior years at UW. The FYI student facilitators plan numerous aspects of the institute and facilitate the majority of the leadership development activities. Participants in the program can expect to learn more about themselves as leaders, the vast involvement opportunities at UW, and meet other first-year students at UW.
The FYI retreat is 100% FREE to students! This includes transportation, food and lodging.
This year FYI will be a one-day event on Saturday, September 18.
Because we were unable to offer FYI last year, Sophomores are welcome to attend this year!
