First Year Experience (FYE)

Make the most of your first year at the University of Guelph-Humber!

First-Year Experience logo

The First Year Experience (FYE) program eases your transition into university! You’ll connect online with a small group of your peers in your academic program throughout the summer and your first year at UofGH. This group is led by an FYE Leader, a current student in your program, who will welcome you, provide you with important information like what to expect in classes, connect you with other students in your program, and answer any questions you have.

FYE Groups

As a new UofGH student, you are automatically enrolled in the FYE program. Check your Gryph Mail for a welcome email from Student Life with subject line Student Life welcomes you to UofGH! It contains an invitation to join your FYE group on Microsoft Teams.

If you have trouble logging into Teams or didn’t receive an email on June 22, contact Student Life at

Kick Start

As part of the FYE program, you can register for Kick Start, a series of live webinars designed to support your transition from secondary to post-secondary education. There are sessions for your parents and supporters too!

Check out the Kick Start webinar series.


Your FYE Leader is excited to join you virtually at Orientation! More information will be posted on the Orientation website in July 2020.
