The South Campus FYE and student life departments recently hosted Premiere Day 2014. Faculty, staff, and FYE orientation leaders met with the group of new students talking about their own first experiences at the College, what to expect, study tips, and more. FYE orientation leaders also lead teams of students around campus for the Premiere Day Scavenger Hunt.

Thanks to FYE and student life for another great Premiere Day event!
