First Year Experience


First Year Mentors welcome and help new students become acclimated to campus community, both academically and socially. Meet the FYMS »

Welcome to the Office of First Year Experience!

The Office of First Year Experience, or FYE, provides programming and services to all new students on Pitt-Oakland’s campus.  This includes all first year college freshman as well as new transfer students and those who have relocated from other Pitt campuses.  FYE is housed in the Department of Student Life, but is a collaboration with many other offices including Residence Life, Commuter Student Programs and Transfer Student Programs. This site will provide you with information about orientation programs, retreats and other programs designed for first year students. 

Are you a new student getting ready to attend Pitt in the Fall of 2015? Check out our PantherConnect Orientation Retreat program and visit our orientation page to stay up to date.

A full schedule of events is now available for New Student Orientation. A schedule for transfer orientation will be available in July.
