First Year Experience works to create and deliver programs and initiatives designed to help students make the most of their first year and beyond at FGCU. Our office provides students with the tools they need to succeed by helping them to get engaged, get adjusted, build skills, and be curious.
Learn More About Our Pre-Semester Programs
College is an exciting time, and Eagle View Orientation (EVO, as we call it) provides the gateway to making the most of your FGCU experience. We'll prepare you for the opportunities and responsibilities that await.
Immerse yourself in a learning opportunity with your peers to have an unforgettable experience before classes even begin. All of these opportunities are exclusively available to the Class of 2027.
These programs take place in August and are designed to give students a headstart on Math, Chemistry, Biology or Economics so they are prepared to excel in these courses once the Fall semester begins.Register
