First Year Experience

First Year Mentors

The First Year Mentors or FYMs are upper-class students who are here to help you during your transition. This year we have 20 FYMs to assist you. FYMs work through the summer planning fun and exciting activities to help get new students connected during Orientation. During the academic year the FYMs design and put on programs specifically for first year students to help make sure your first year at Pitt is as enjoyable and fulfilling as possible.
