Towson University’s First Year Experience (FYE) program offers new freshmen an opportunity to ease into academic life at Towson.
At Orientation, the weekend before classes begin, students meet their adviser, who will work with them throughout their first year. The mechanism for the advising program is the ORIE305/306 course. For this course, students meet periodically with their adviser at key times in the year or when the student or adviser believes it necessary.
During Welcome to Towson, TU's orientation program for new students, you will meet your First-Year Experience (FYE) adviser who will help you make any needed adjustments to your schedule. All new students are assigned to a FYE adviser, who may be a TU faculty member, professional academic adviser or staff member. Your adviser can answer questions about curriculum, majors, special opportunities (internships, study abroad) or general adjustment to college, including crucial time management and study skills.
FYE advisers are those who particularly want to work with new students. They have completed the
FYE Institute and, typically, work with students in their department.
