The First Year Experience Program engages students during their first year of college in order to increase student success, retention and degree completion. The program supports a variety of activities such as: conducting freshmen surveys to better understand the student; facilitating a First Year Orientation Class (SD-107: New Student Orientation and SD-307: Transfer Student Orientation) that helps students understand themselves, their environment, how to access resources, and how to persist to achieve their goals; providing follow-up calls/correspondence to students who are struggling; assisting in academic advising; assessing student interests and facilitating the pursuit of those interests; and following-up with students who withdraw from the college.
