What is the First-Year Experience (FYE)? It's a program aimed at you...the first-year student! The First-Year Experience focuses on giving the first-year student the resources and support needed to successfully transition to college. Louisiana Tech has a long history of providing services to first-year students; however, this year initiatives are being coordinated and implemented under the First-Year Experience umbrella. The Common Reading Program, the First-Year Convocation and the Medallion are just a few of many exciting programs to come! It is our goal to provide special events and activities to help you excel academically, find friends, adjust to college life and balance your academic and social schedules.
