First Year Experience
The First Year Experience programs at Saint Peter's University act upon the uniqueness of Saint Peter's University as a Jesuit University in the Catholic tradition. Through the Jesuit values of cura personalis and "Men and Women for Others," the University strives to provide a quality first year experience, both academically and personally. The First Year Experience, consistent with the University's mission, seeks to develop the whole person in preparation for a lifetime of learning, leadership and service in a diverse and global society through a variety of engaging and dynamic programs targeted to first year students.
Through faculty advising and other opportunities, first year students begin to develop a clear sense of identity and articulate their respective personal and academic goals within and across their various communities as they learn to become men and women for others. First year students become empowered to take control of their collegiate experience. A successful First Year Experience develops students today to become college leaders tomorrow.
