The First-Year Student Outreach Project, FYSOP, begins with a week of community engagement, service, and education before classes begin. With a small group of other new students and returning student leaders, participants will build connections with Boston, its neighborhoods and people, community organizations, our campus, and each other.

FYSOP 2019 is open to all new undergraduates at Boston University beginning in September 2019, and will take place Monday, August 26, through Friday, August 30, 2019.

Registration for FYSOP 2019 has closed.
