Your First Year Experience
Making a smooth transition to college life is an important step in achieving success at college and at Northland. The first year experience (FYE) will get you started on the right path by connecting you to the people, programs, and activities that will help you get the most out of your first year. FYE at Northland consists of your orientation trip and an FYE course that runs the first eight weeks of the semester.
FYE is designed to help you get the most out of your time at Northland College. All students will be automatically enrolled in FYE when registering for their first semester of classes. However, students who are transferring at least 24 credits or will be transferring a first year experience course can opt out if they choose.
Northland College’s First Year Experience Course
The Northland FYE course is designed to engage new Northlanders in the richness and diversity of student life. Participation in the FYE course begins on the Tuesday before academic classes begins, and continues through the first semester. The course is coordinated by the Campus Counselor and Campus Nurse. Each course section has 8-10 students and an upper-class student leader. FYE students will have opportunities to get to know their fellow classmates and participate in a variety of planned events and activities both on campus and in the local region.
The goals of the FYE course are:
- To develop a support network of peers and student leaders to enable a successful transition to Northland College.
- To become familiar with the components of the co-curriculum (ethical leadership, active citizenship, service, wellness, and lifelong learning).
- To cultivate a connection to the Chequamegon Bay region through service.
- To become involved in the Northland community.
- To foster the development of character and reinforce the values associated with a reflective, ethical, and sustainable life.
- To acquire the skills for living responsibly in community.
