First Year Experience
Get ready for an amazing adventure with the First Year Experience (FYE) Programme! It's your chance to boost your skills and personal growth during your first year. It is our intention to make this journey exciting, interactive, and totally YOU.
Imagine this: weekly First Year Seminars (FYS) where you will dive into student success tools like time management (yes, it's a skill!), note-taking strategies, critical thinking, and communication skills. And guess what? It all happens in an awesome and diverse setting that's all about YOU.

Now, here's the scoop: to make sure you join us, just sign up for FYE on CHOL using the code FYE 0100. You've got the power to choose a seminar time that fits into your schedule. And get this, our seminars go full-on inperson! Yup, that means you'll be mingling with your peers, our friendly facilitators and peer mentors.

Ready to jump in? Make sure to join the FYE group on the UWI Chill App. This is where the magic begins! Speaking of magic, FYE is like a treasure chest of personal benefits! Think better time management, improved critical thinking, and communication skills. Plus, we'll make you aware of out-of-classroom opportunities. Wait, there's one more thing: making friends! By joining FYS groups, you'll be mingling with the smartest new Cave Hill Blackbirds and building a network that's strong and tight-knit, right from the start. Like you, they took a leap and are investing in their own development. So, here's our friendly nudge: grab this unique chance to learn, grow, and create memories by heading over to the FYE Homepage for more details.

Mark your calendar for Friday September 8, 2023, at 2 p.m. because your journey starts with a fun-filled in-person launch in the Roy Marshall Teaching Complex in LT1. We're here to make your journey unforgettable, and we can't wait to meet you. See you soon!
