First Year Experience programs are made possible in part by private support from alumni, community partners, parents and friends of The Ohio State University. FYE programs help students learn how to navigate the university, get comfortable on campus, challenge themselves and think of Ohio State as home.
The Ohio State University Fund for First Year Experience and University Orientation
Support for this fund will be used to enhance our programs that support students during their transition to college, contribute to retention, and aid in a student’s personal growth and leadership development. Donations to this fund will be used to assist the planning and administration of programs and finance student scholarships for programs with a participation fee.
Supporters of FYE recognize that their patronage will support all new undergraduate students through the first months of the college transition and create conditions for success at The Ohio State University.
