Apply to be a First-Year Experience Leader
The First-Year Experience Program will help welcome new STUdents to our campus community and provide meaningful opportunities for them to connect with one another, upper-year STUdents, as well as faculty and staff.
As upper-year STUdents, you know how exciting and challenging your first few days, weeks, and months of university can be—and we have a way you can help this year’s incoming STUdents get through it.
What is the First-Year Experience Program?
The First-Year Experience Program is a new initiative created for first-year students to experience a sense of belonging within the STU community and connect with peer mentors, faculty and staff, while studying remotely and being away from campus. All first-year students will be placed in smaller groups of 20-25 students. Each group will be led by a Gold and Green Leader, to foster growth, learning and ease of transition for students.
IMPORTANT: Incoming first-year STUdents will hear more about this program in the coming weeks!
