First-Year Experience

Student success starts with a great first year.

Northwest's First Year Experience (FYE) exists to support student success through the delivery of programs, resources, and services designed to jumpstart a student's undergraduate journey at Northwest.

The Northwest family is passionate about your development as a whole student. We want you to love being a Bearcat!

The First Year Experience is a collaborative effort across campus to create programs that will support you in your academics, with your co-curricular interests, and through personal growth. All First-year students share some common experiences, but there is flexibility to personalize your own experience through your time at Northwest. This looks different for every student, but no matter what your path, you will find opportunity and support along the way. The Northwest family is committed to your success: Every Student, Every Day.
