First-Generation Second Year Experience Program

Program Overview

The First-Generation Second Year Experience (SYE) is a continuation of the First-Year Experience (FYE) for First-Generation second-year college students. First-Generation SYE mentees meet with their peer mentors three times per semester for two semesters. SYE peer mentors are also First-Generation college students, so they will understand the strengths and difficulties of being the first in their family to graduate from a four-year university or college. 

Please watch the video below to hear from our previous SYE peer mentors and learn more about this innovative opportunity!
