Transcript of University of Alabama, First Year Experience

YOUR First-Year Experience FYE Mission Statement

First Year Experience will support the successful academic and social transition of new students into the University of Alabama community. Transition: "Any event, or non-event, that results in changed relationships, routines, assumptions, and roles...stress the role of perception in transitions...transition exists only if it is so defined by the individual experiencing it."

(Schlossberg et al., 1995, as cited in Evans, Forney, and Gido-DiBrito, 1998, p.111) Transition is different for everyone. Come and don't look back
