Loyola University Chicago

First-Year Experience


The first year of college is a time of transition for every student. FYE offers a casual, student-run meeting called Transitions, which is available for students who wish to hang out and chat for a bit with one of our upper-class mentors.

This discussion groups meet every week for an hour in various locations.  First-year students are invited to join Transitions on how to find ways to get connected on campus and talk about issues they may have while adjusting to life at Loyola. Stop in once, or join us every week. It's your choice.

Snacks will be provided!
