First Year Experience

The three pillars of Lane's First Year Experience (FYE) are academic planning, career exploration and financial skill-building. Research from the Association of American Colleges and Universities has shown that students who participate in First Year Experience programs have more positive relationships with faculty, are more knowledgeable about and make better use of campus resources, and exhibit better time-management skills than peers who do not participate in these types of programs*. Participation in Lane's FYE is open to all new students and a requirements for recipients of the Oregon Promise grant.
