First Year Experience

The transition to college can be a confusing and anxious time for freshmen.  The First Year Experience (FYE) program helps students adapt to college by offering support in the Early Start program and throughout the first years of college.

  • The FYE office is a great place to meet people and learn about events on campus, and our team has a deep history at Cal State L.A. because we are former alumni, current students, or parents of Cal State L.A. students.
  • All of us are committed to helping students, so if you have any questions, call or stop by—we look forward to meeting you, and we are always here to assist you.
  • Finally, incoming freshman can sign up for First Year Seminars, workshops designed and run by current students who share their knowledge about the university to help students learn more about campus resources, events, and how to succeed in college.
