First Year Residential Experience (FYRE)

This community based program assists first year residential students in their academic transition to SVSU.  Students will explore University resources and engage in University activities to develop academic competencies needed to be a successful student. The FYRE program will empower students to take control of their educational and social endeavors.

Students who participate in the FYRE community will receive:

  • Academic support through tutoring
  • Academic advising
  • Programs with faculty and staff outside the classroom
  • Exclusive programs dedicated to exploring majors
  • Career path exploration
  • Resident Assistant support and guidance
  • Designated areas for quiet studying

The selected participants will attend Camp FYRE in August. Students will stay on campus and participate in an orientation to the program which will include teambuilding, classroom tours, and interactions with SVSU staff.
