First Year Advisory Board

FAB Downtown Pic

The first-year advisory board (FAB) is an easy way for first year students to get involved at Salem State University in a fun and simple way during their first year. Founded in 2012, the first-year advisory board actively looks for feedback from first year students in how to improve their experience at the university. Anyone can become a member of FAB, and since first year students are busy being involved with a lot during their first year there aren't an overwhelming number of meetings or events when serving on the board. FAB members help:

  • coordinate and promote social and community service programs
  • provide feedback to the university administration on critical issues related to first year students
  • recognize administration, faculty, and staff for their outstanding support of first year students

To find out more information, or to sign up to be a part of FAB, like "FAB First-Year Advisory Board" on Facebook. FAB representatives will be at orientation to answer any questions you may have.
