First Year Experience- FYE

First Year Experience (FYE) at New River Community and Technical College is designed to enhance your experience during the first year of college.New River CTC is dedicated to your success through establishing a set of first year classes on each of our campuses which groups together freshman in the same general education classes. Each campus has a FYE Campus Guide who will provide weekly opportunities to connect.

Join us at campus orientations, workshops, and seminars throughout the semester.  A link to the topics and times is below under FYE workshops.

Connectivity – Defining a New River CTC network of peers, faculty, staff, and administration for your success. In the mathematical field of graph theory, a complete graph is a graph in which every pair of distinct vertices is connected by a unique edge.

Cohorts in Common General Education Core Courses

First-year students often take the same courses, even though their majors are different. All majors have a general education requirement, so we are providing an opportunity for you to participate in a FYE cohort taking Math, English, and Psychology and one additional class in your major. Cohorts bring first year college students together. By coming together through cohorts, students can get to know each other quicker and start collaborating sooner.


Academic Advising

During the first half of your first semester your guide will set up an academic advising appointment with you to determine goals and plans to reach those goals at New River CTC.



Academic Support

New River CTC has resources for you to meet your goals. Contact your Campus Guide to assist with finding a tutor for a variety of courses.
