The First Year Experience

The First Year Experience is coordinated by the staff in the College of Arts & Sciences’ Office of Student Academic Life – located on the fourth floor of 100 Bay State Road.

The members of the Student Programs & Leadership and Academic Advising offices are here to help our newest undergraduates, both freshmen and transfer students, transition into the intellectual, social, and cultural community of Boston University. We do this through integrated offerings of curricular and co-curricular opportunities throughout the first year.

In the Fall Semester, students are encouraged to register for FY101, a first-year seminar course, and then to continue their experience with FY103, a topic based seminar course offered in the Spring.
