The Office of First-Year and Transition (FYT) engages and assists new students in developing a foundation of best practices and accountability for their academic and personal success at Fredonia. We seek to connect first-year and transfer students to resources, tools, and information that promote positive social behaviors and academic confidence. This office communicates directly with new students, parents, and the campus community via email and social media about support services, special events, campus policies, and university traditions.

Please contact Erin Mroczka, Director of FY&T Programs at (716)673-3271.
