First Year Experience

First Year Experience Mentor Program

Your first year of college is an exciting time of experience full of new people, schedules, locations, opportunities, a whole new way of life. Sometimes you’ll want a friendly face to help you find your way. NYIT’s First Year Experience (FYE) connects every student with an FYE mentor who serves as a resource and guide on all things NYIT. They know the ropes and will help you get settled and get help when you need it. FYE mentors also plan activities during the semester that are academic, social, and help the community.

 

 

Getting Involved

Transition to College

Coming to college can sometimes be a difficult transition - new schedule, new friends, more responsibility, and maybe even a new place to live. With all the changes there is bound to be more stress. Are you sleeping enough? Eating enough? Staying out too late? Finding enough time to get all your work done and have a social life? Are you feeling lonely? Stressed out? Sad? We are here to help.

Counseling services are confidential and free for all enrolled students. We have offices on both campuses staffed with licensed professional counselors. You are always welcome to stop by. Find more information and a full description of counseling services online or by calling Manhattan at 212.261.1770 or Old Westbury at 516.686.7976.
