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.
