First Year Experience Program

FYE Program.png

The First Year Experience (FYE) Program at Mohawk College is designed to support you in your transition to college life! For the Spring semester, our FYE leaders will be hosting a variety of sessions weekly to welcome you to our community and help connect you to the college as you dive into semester one!

First-year students attending FYE sessions will:

  • Gain valuable tips on how to succeed
  • Get to know other students through virtual hangouts 
  • Have the opportunity to ask questions in a low pressure student-to-student environment

All FYE sessions will be hosted virtually on Zoom. 

Check out our upcoming FYE sessions!

Juan Garcia
