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! Connect online with other new students in your program throughout the summer. Each FYE Group is led by an FYE Leader, a current student in your program who is excited to meet you and welcome you to the University! They’ll share important dates, what to expect in classes, and how to make friends – ask them anything!

Profiles of your FYE Leaders will be posted here in early July so you can put a face to a name.

FYE Groups

As a new UofGH student, you’re automatically enrolled in the FYE program. Check your Gryph Mail for your first email from Student Life, with an invitation to join your FYE Group on Microsoft Teams!

Once you log into Teams, look at the left-side menu and click Teams, where you’ll see your FYE group with the name of your FYE Leader in the title (ex. Business FYE 2021 – Joel’s Group). Read through the posts and check back every few days for updates and important info. And of course, message your FYE Leader anytime with questions.

Contact Student Life at if you have trouble accessing your FYE group.
