Flagler College - An Unparalleled Value

First Year Experience

Welcome to Your First Year Experience

Your experience is important to us, from the moment you receive your letter of admittance to the day you graduate from college and explore the next chapter in your life. Your Flagler College experience starts with your first year on campus. This program is designed for all new students- freshmen, transfer and international.

The First Year Experience (FYE) Program

Mission

The Purpose of Flagler College’s first year experience program is to aid the transition of new students into a campus community that is uniquely situated in the nation’s oldest city and dedicated to the academic success and personal development of every student. The first year program integrates new students into the intellectual, cultural, and social life of the college, introduces students to a challenging academic community in which they engage in active learning, and fosters a collaborative campus environment in which students receive personalized support from faculty, staff and administrators. Every college department promotes these goals and is dedicated to working in concert to ensure that during their first year Flagler students become active, vital members of the college community.

Your First Year Experience starts with four essential components:

  1. First Year Advisor
  2. Building Your Legacy Orientation
  3. Learning Communities
  4. Keystone Seminar
FYE Profile
"Come in with an open mind and look for things that interest you. Even if the subject seems like something you would never even consider. There are always things that you might find interesting, that you might take away from the experience."

Laura Henning, '15
English Major
