First-Year Experience (FYE) Mentors

First Year Experience (FYE) Mentors are dynamic upper-class role models who help first-year students in their transition to Kalamazoo College. There is one FYE Mentor assigned to each First-Year Seminar. FYE Mentors begin assisting incoming students during the summer before students arrive and remain an integral part of their transition experience throughout the first half of fall quarter.  FYE Mentors facilitate many activities during orientation, get to know the students in their seminars, and help build community and friendships so new students can feel safe and comfortable in their new environment. They help educate students and provide leadership and advice so new students can find success both academically and socially at K.
