First Year Experience

Welcome to your first year at the University of Wyoming!

The First Year Experience (FYE) is designed to help you get ready for the demands of college life. The goals of the FYE are to facilitate the transition to college life by developing skills to meet the challenges of higher education and improving self-awareness and understanding of others.

We are dedicated to connecting first-year students and transfer/non-traditional first-year UW students to the wide variety of campus resources available. On this page you can explore opportunities and resources that will help you during this exciting transition. This is your home for finding avenues for getting involved on campus, help for tough classes, and support for planning your future and career. Learn more about the two courses which are built around YOU.
