First Year Experience

Student Union, Room 313 A-E
Phone: (516) 876-3458
E-Mail: firstyear@oldwestbury.edu

The First-Year Experience Program provides students with the academic and personal support needed to succeed as first-year students. All first-year students take a First-Year Seminar course. These courses cover topics such as study skills, career planning and time management, as well as allowing students to engage in an in-depth analysis of a selected academic topic.

Open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the office invites students to stop by, enjoy some light refreshments, and relax. There also is a Student Resource Center with a rich collection of books and information sheets about college, study skills and the first-year experience.

Along with its curricular components, the First-Year Experience program sponsors a series of activities including a weekly film festival, monthly field trips, three student clubs, and many special events including dances, contests, pizza parties, and picnics.
