Welcome

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.
