First-Year Experience

FYI from FYE signupWelcome!

The First-Year Experience provides support to prospective and accepted students, their parents, the first-year class, and mentors.  We help students as they prepare for their arrival at the College—whether they are spending their first semester in Saratoga Springs, NY or at our London program—and as they navigate through their first year of college.
