FYE Seminars

Few students arrive at school with all the skills they need to tackle college life.

In the FYE seminar you’ll focus on topics, such as study, responsible decisions, and practical introductions to student services, to ensure you know how to get the resources you need to succeed.

FYE Seminars are offered by faculty from almost every academic department on campus and will introduce new students to professional staff and other peers with whom they might not ever have had the opportunity to meet and develop associations.


Efolios or electronic folios are increasingly becoming a critical student tool for students to document their academic learning and growth. Minnesota State Colleges and Universities have developed a tool for students entitled “eFolio Minnesota” which you can use to create a web based efolio where you can catalog evidence of classroom learning, special projects, and on-going self assessments of academic planning. These folios are student managed and access can only be given by permission. It is recommended that all FYE students investigate and learn how to use this educational tool.
