The goal in the First Year Experience course is to offer students a valuable learning experience.

The course is designed to help students transition to college and create greater success in the workplace and life. Students will learn many proven strategies for creating greater academic, professional, and personal success. Emphasis is placed on learning goal-setting, self-motivation, time management, emotional intelligence, self- awareness, collaboration, and personal responsibility. Guided journal writings are used to explore these strategies, and as a bonus, students will learn to express themselves more effectively in writing.  

Students will also learn about the resources available to them at Bay College to support their success. This course offers students the opportunity to discover how to create a rich, personally fulfilling life.
