First Year Experience

First Year Experience (FYE) is for any interested first-year student, regardless of major, looking to experience and realize the full potential of their first year at The University of Toledo.

All students living in Parks Tower participate in the FYE program. Parks Tower is an air-conditioned hall offering traditional-style, single and double bedrooms with built-in closet space.

Hall and floor programs focus on the specific needs, issues and challenges of first-year students. The staff is specifically trained to better understand first-year students, and with a small student-to-staff ratio, resident assistants are able to spend more time with floor residents. Students have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills, improve their academic skills and make an overall positive transition to college life. Opportunities for frequent faculty-student interaction and individualized attention will be provided to the students residing on these floors. Students will also have greater opportunity to be connected to University services as well as participate in workshops, study groups and tutorials designed to help with their transition to college.

As a member of FYE, you will live exclusively with fellow first-year students looking to explore The University of Toledo and make the most out of their first year on campus. Joining FYE provides you with a community of growing and learning throughout your first-year.
