The Austin College Mission Statement says (in part):
“An Austin College education emphasizes academic excellence, intellectual and personal integrity, and participation in community life.”
First-Year Experience will connect you to the mission of Austin College through shared experiences like First-Year Seminar. It will also teach you the shared expectations for participation in our community through programming like First-Year Information (FYI). And, First-Year Experience will connect you with your faculty mentor, who will be there to guide you through all four years at Austin College (and beyond!).
During your first year, we provide opportunities for you to engage meaningfully with different aspects of life at Austin College.
