1 An Overview for NMU Parents

2  “FYE” stands for First Year Experience  FYE was designed with three goals in mind: help students develop strategies and attitudes to maximize academic success familiarize students with campus resources (how to use them) assist students in developing positive relationships with faculty, staff, student leaders and peers  It is a FREE program that students elect to participate in during their first semester of enrollment at NMU. Students choose a “block” of courses to share with other students who have similar academic interests  Each fall, about 70% of incoming freshman participate in FYE blocks  blocks are offered each fall; there are many academic areas from which students can choose  FYE blocks are for the first semester only (not the full year); their objective is to provide for a successful first year at NMU

3 EARLY registration for courses (months prior to attending Orientation) CONFIRMED course schedule CHOICE of courses related to academic interests SHARED experience with other incoming students Alleviate anxiety associated with “process” Early exposure to academic depts. and faculty High impact, nationally recognized post-secondary educational practice that aids retention
