Our First Year Experience (FYE) team is dedicated to ensuring first-year students' successful transition from high school to Cal State Fullerton. In addition to our helpful office staff, our First-Year Success Team members create engaging learning environments and are essential resources towards students' pathway to academic success.
First-Year Success Teams
Faculty, Student Services professionals and Peer Mentors serve as the First-Year Success Team. These teams share a passion for cultivating a positive learning experience for first-time freshmen in transition.The supportive environment allows a unique opportunity to help freshmen build their academic skills, increase their connections to the campus community, and engage students in early civic responsibility.
Peer Mentors: Student Guided Freshman Empowerment
Peer Mentors are upper division students who are teamed up with faculty and student services professionals to co-facilitate a section of University Studies 100. Peer Mentors play an active role in class discussions, collaborate with members of their First Year Success Team, and meet with students individually to serve as a role model and mentor.
Peer Mentors empower FYE students and assist them to make relevant connections within the community to accomplish their goals of student success.
