Join us wherever you are to stay connected and have fun! Check out all the ways you can #StudentLifeEverywhere here.

Student Life & First-Year Experience (SL&FYE) is dedicated to the health and wellness of all students. In an effort to limit transmission of COVID-19, SL&FYE will be cancelling all in person events effective immediately until the University resumes full operations. We will be hosting events online, so stay tuned!

The Office of SL&FYE will operate via phone and email only during normal operating hours. You can call (859) 622-3855 or email during that time.
