End of the Inaugural Year of the First-Year Experience Seminar
To celebrate the end of the inaugural year of the First-Year Experience (FYE) Seminar, South Florida State College administrators, faculty, and staff recently gathered for a potluck celebration on May 6, in the Arts and Sciences Conference Room.
The course was developed as part of SFSC’s Guide to Personal Success (GPS) initiative. The First-Year Experience Seminar is a one credit hour seminar course required for all degree-seeking students with 15 or fewer college credits. The FYE seminar builds upon information learned during orientation.
FYE assists students as they make the social, emotional, and cognitive leaps from high school, where motivation for learning is extrinsic, to college, where motivation for learning is intrinsic. Primary themes for FYE Seminars are personal and academic growth and development; application of learning style theories; and relationship-building activities.
