Virtual First Year Communities

Main content start

In Spring 2021, ResEd will be launching Virtual First Year Communities, to provide additional opportunities for first year students to connect with each virtually.

All enrolled frosh will be assigned to one of eight virtual communities for the quarter (which will include the members of their Autumn First Year Mentor groups). Over the course of the quarter, small teams of student “First Year Programming Coordinators” (FPCs) will develop and put on diverse programming for their assigned community of first years. Some programs will be open to the whole virtual community, and some will be more intimate; all programming will be developed in consultation with and customized to suit the needs and interests of the first year community.

All enrolled first year students will receive a welcome email from their FPC team by March 28! In general, first year students should expect weekly program opportunities weeks 1 through 10 of Spring quarter.

If you have any questions or inquiries regarding this program, please contact us.
