The First-Year Experience Office (FYE) is responsible for all aspects of the first year at Harvard College as students make the transition from home and high school into a new and diverse community. Harvard is proud of its unique residential system, one which places first-year students in and around the Yard—the historic and geographic center of the College—and which provides them a close network of peers and advisers. The FYE is part of the larger Dean of Students Office (DSO) which supports the four-year residential experience at Harvard.
The DSO offers many opportunities for you to get to know your classmates, learn more about college life and to simply have fun.
From dorm amenities like music rooms to kitchen equipment and DVDs, the DSO has many resources that first-years can take advantage of.
