The First-Year Experience

Kalamazoo College prides itself in its strong First-Year Experience (FYE) Program, which weaves together hands-on involvement, experiential learning, and mentorship within the context of a rigorous academic life. Key components of the program include First-Year Seminars, First-Year Forums, First-Year residence halls, Peer Leader mentors, Advising, and Summer Common Reading. With these pillars, the FYE helps K students to:

  • achieve academic success
  • identify and pursue passions
  • connect with Kalamazoo College and the greater Kalamazoo communities
  • construct complex intercultural understandings
  • develop a purpose-filled and balanced life
