First Year Transition Community

The First Year Transition (FYT) Living Learning Community (LLC) is for students from a variety of majors and interests who would like a broader COR experience as opposed to one that is focused on one topic in particular. This LLC will focus on connecting students to resources and opportunities for involvement in a variety of areas of interest or study. Students will connect with one another around what it is like to transition to college and how to make the most of their experience here at USM. The FYT LLC is slated to be in Woodward Hall for the fall of 2020.
