First Year Experience
Established in 2021, the new First Year Experience (FYE) at Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) strives to empower students to make the most of their first year as part of the NOVA community. FYE programming provides students with opportunities for exploration and personal development as they acclimate to college life. This is achieved through a coordinated series of opportunities to engage with services & resources, connect with faculty, staff and peers, enhance academic & personal readiness and engage in co-curricular and civic-minded learning opportunities.
