First-Year Experience

Welcome to the First-Year Experience Program... It's where you live!

All first-year residents participate in the First-Year Experience (FYE) that is designed to assist in your transition, both socially and academically, to Georgia Tech. You will live with other first-year students as well as upper-class Resident Assistants who facilitate engagement and provide resources developed specifically for you.

Our purpose is to help first-year residents build a solid personal and academic foundation within the context of a diverse and inclusive community. The program helps residents learn to understand their own personal identity and how to engage in their new community, which are cornerstones for success at Georgia Tech.

All First-Year students live in FYE residence halls - including First-Year Living Learning Community students. There is no additional fee for the First-Year Experience program.
