New Student Transitions & First Year Experience (NST&FYE) is committed to providing a comprehensive and collaborative approach to ensure the success and retention of our new students.
NST&FYE offers a range of programs and resources for new students delivered through orientation programs, transition courses, shared learning experiences, peer support, and student leadership. Drawing from extensive knowledge about the first-year experience, NST & FYE educates the campus community about the unique and evolving needs of our new students and their families in order for all of us to provide optimum support inside and outside the classroom.
NST&FYE ultimately supports new students and their families’ transitions to college by encouraging exploration and connections to UNCG’s many resources. NST&FYE builds sophomore-ready students through strategic initiatives to support academic success, personal purpose, and practical skills, and a sense of belonging and Spartan pride, anchored by the Foundations course in the MAC general education program.
