First Year Experience


Our goal in the Office of the First Year Experience is to ensure that all new Pitt students find a welcoming and engaging community when they arrive on campus. Through our extensive programs and services, we can help to ease your transition by providing plenty of opportunities for you to forge new friendships and feel at home in your new surroundings.
