A student's initial semester is perhaps the most vital
Dalton State College is committed to offering a welcoming atmosphere that will provide positive experiences and foster stronger sense of community. First Year Experience (FYE) supports this commitment through a wide range of activities, services, and academic success strategies designed specifically for first-year students.
From Orientation to graduation, involvement in campus activities is key to creating and maintaining a sense of community with one's peers. During a typical year, FYE sponsors movies, lectures, art shows, food festivals, and musical events.
Because the first-year students typically have different needs and concerns than more seasoned students, the FYE Coordinator and FYES1000 instructors serve as advocates to support student success, work with other campus departments, schedule tutoring, refer students to services, and offer scheduling advice.
