First Year Experience

First Year Experience engages students in their fist year at Mississippi College through a variety of social and educational initiatives.

First Year Experience (FYE)

The First Year Experience program consists of a variety of initiatives created to assist in the transition of first year students at Mississippi College. These initiatives, including educational workshops for both freshmen and transfer students, as well as First Year events organized by the FYE team of 20+ student leaders and the FYE student directors. These events are geared toward students in their first year, helping them deal with all of the emotions that come along with the first year of college. The ultimate goal of the First Year Experience program is to make new students feel connected to the campus culture and community.


Workshops are monthly seminars dedicated to meeting the unique needs of students, but new freshmen and transfers to Mississippi College. They aim to assist in the unique experience of first year students, orienting them on both the culture and academic side of MC. These workshops are open to all first year students throughout the year and focus on a variety of topics such as strengths and involvement.

First Year Events

Throughout the semester, the FYE team hosts events dedicated specifically to connecting with newer students on our campus. These events range from educational to recreational and are open to all first year students at MC.
