Focusing on the First Year Conference
Focusing on the First Year is a half-day conference bringing together faculty and staff from across the Columbus and regional campuses to focus on the university's efforts to support the success of first-year students. The most important foundations for college success, and ultimately graduation, are built during the first year. Hosted by FYE each spring, the conference is designed to encourage faculty and staff to share ideas about helping first-year students transition successfully to college life at Ohio State.
