FYE highlighted spring programs and events
The IU Office of First-Year Experience (FYE) Programs announces a few of the highlighted FYE programs being offered for first-year IU students, faculty, and staff during the spring semester. For information about one or more of the programs, or to suggest a student or colleague who might benefit from participating, please contact Jack Rhodes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This new student leader team is committed to supporting new students through a successful first year. "FYAmbassadors" promote educational, social, and developmental programming offered by FYE, our partners throughout campus, and the Bloomington community.
The IN Crowd is an experiential process bringing together a diverse group of first-year students to discuss elements of identity, privilege, and bias for the purpose of improving the inclusive climate of their individual living and learning communities. Participants develop a better understanding of their individual, social/cultural, and institutional perspectives on identity through exploration, the acquisition of knowledge and skills, and the development of action steps.
This new program offers first-year students the opportunity to become involved in the Bloomington community through the act of service. Beyond the Gates provides an opportunity for hundreds of students to work with one of twenty community agencies.
FYE and the Office of Admissions have collaborated to create a blog on which selected freshmen write about their experiences as first-year students at Indiana University. The topics written about are as diverse and interesting as the student bloggers themselves. A common theme throughout the blog is excitement about and an appreciation of the opportunity to attend Indiana University.
Freshman GO! is a program lead by the Jacobs School of Music, in collaboration with FYE and Residential Programs and Services. The program is intended to encourage new students to experience the arts. Featuring a special performance in opera, ballet, jazz, and orchestra–students attend both a performance and a special event reception.
Conversations on First-Year Student Success is a new program sponsored by FYE which seeks to provide a forum for faculty and staff to discuss major issues impacting the achievement of first-year students within our community and to provide tools for cultivating the success of our students. The intent is to provide a space for faculty and staff interaction and cross-departmental communication to strengthen existing efforts to positively impact the first-year experience of our students.
