Your first year at Salem State University is an opportunity to explore, learn and grow. The first year experience office (FYE) is here to ensure that you have access to the resources and support you will need to successfully navigate the transition from high school to university life. Your first-year experience will lay the foundation for your continued success in academic, intellectual, social, and civic endeavors throughout your undergraduate career. Whether it's your first class, meeting your first new friend, joining your first student organization, or any other number of "firsts," the FYE office is here to help.

Connect with us on the Class of 2020 Facebook page, the First Year Success Facebook page, our blog, and Twitter.  The Class of 2021 page is also now active for students who have applied to the university for Fall 2017.

Discover resources designed to help you become more successful during your first year.  Check out the FYE Newsletter [PDF] to help you get started on the right foot!
