First Year Experience

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 Weekend

Welcome weekend is an 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.
