The FYRST (First Year Residents Succeeding Together) Program is centered in the Freshman residence halls Skeath and Asbury. It consists of several key elements, including our FYRST programming series, which will ease you into college life and living in the residence halls. Additionally, there are fun and exciting opportunities for you to meet new people and develop new skills. Sessions begin during 1st Weekend and continue through the spring semester. Programming includes both academic and social adjustment topics as well as plenty of social events to help you get to know your new classmates and friends.
Resident Advisors (RAs) are upper class students selected on the basis of leadership skills. RAs live among students and provide information, refer students to campus and local resources, help enforce College and community standards, use helping skills for students in need and facilitate educational and social programs. Most importantly, RAs assist in the development and maintenance of strong, positive residence hall communities. RAs work with you to enhance the out of classroom experience for all members of the community.
