FLC's Peer Mentors

First Year Experience (FYE) is a yearlong program designed to support students in their first year of college. By participating in FYE, students will receive registration assistance, referrals to campus services, peer mentoring, and placement in a learning community made up of required courses needed to meet educational goals.

What is a Learning Community?
FYE students benefit from enrollment in a small group of first year students who learn together in a cohort atmosphere. Learning Communities are made up of required math and English courses, as well as general education classes. Studies show that participation in Learning Communities greatly enhances a student's opportunity to succeed in college.

What are the benefits of FYE@FLC?

  • Designed for new college students
  • Classes are offered between 9:00am-12:00noon
  • Complete math and English requirements
  • Dedicated instructors
  • Tutoring and academic counseling
  • Peer mentoring

Who can apply?

  • Place into ENGWR 51, ENGWR 101, MATH 30, or MATH 100
  • Be willing to commit to a full academic year of participation
  • Complete the "Steps to Success"
