First Year Experience is an orientation program that places an emphasis on a student’s first year on campus. Our goal is to help students build meaningful relationships while acquainting them with campus life. FYE consists of two parts, Welcome Week and Faulkner Foundations.
Welcome week is a 4 day orientation experience for incoming freshmen and transfer students. It is designed to help students transition to Faulkner University through student-mentor led activities and events. Some welcome week activities include cookouts, service projects, devotionals, and Rocking Jump (indoor trampoline facility).
