About the First Year Experience Program


The goal of the First Year Experience Course is to ensure that all new UMSL students find a welcoming and engaging community when they arrive on campus. The mentors’ primary focus is to support new students during their first semester and successfully connect them to campus resources that they will need during their time here at UMSL. Through our targeted programs and services, we work to ease the students’ transition by providing opportunities for students to forge new friendships and feel at home in their surroundings.
