Student support

Your professor's office

The door is open, so walk in and have a seat. Your professors are here to help you figure things out, guide your curriculum choices and lead you to deeper knowledge and understanding. So use them - for advice, after-class discussion or just to talk. Office hours are a state of mind - and it's on their mind to help you.

Succeed with our First-Year Experience (FYE) Seminar

For our new students, the First-Year Experience (FYE) Seminar is a one-credit, semester-long course that emphasizes self-development through

  • academic enrichment
  • applied knowledge
  • higher-level thinking
  • and socio-economic perspectives.

The First-Year Experience (FYE) Seminar, which is taught by faculty members, runs during the fall semester and addresses the challenges first-year students face. It highlights resources that support student success in areas of critical thinking and effective reading and writing skills that can be applied across each student's curriculum. By actively supporting students as they transition to college, the First-Year Experience (FYE) helps students grow and prosper as productive members of the Saint Joseph's College campus community and the wider community as well.
