From your first day at IU, you’re surrounded by opportunities to explore your interests and prepare for your future. One of the most rewarding ways you can get involved is through the Office of First Year Experience Programs.
Help New Students Become Hoosiers
FYE student staff members help new students discover their life-changing IU experience. It’s a big responsibility, but an extremely rewarding one. Just like other IU students helped you adjust to life here and feel welcome, you can do the same for future Hoosiers.
Working at FYE has many other benefits too. You’ll become an IU expert who knows lots of people on campus. You’ll gain experience and hone your leadership, communication, and problem-solving skills. You’ll work with other enthusiastic students who may become some of your closest friends. And you’ll get to share your love of IU.
