About First Year Experience
The First Year Experience course equips first year students to make an effective transition to university studies and campus life by providing a deeper understanding of the aims of higher education, its value to them, and the skills, habits, and practices to achieve those aims. This includes understanding the purpose of the undergraduate core, the major, and co-curricular work, as well as developing critical thinking skills, academic success attitudes, and significant connections with East Stroudsburg University and Community.
