Why is it important to meet my Advisor at FYE?
Your advisor will serve in that role for your first and possiblysecond year at BFIT. Your advisor will be your top resource for gettingacclimated to campus, adjusting to college life, receiving referral toother campus resources, and continually plotting your academic career.It is important that you stay in touch with your advisor regularly tobuild a solid relationship. The best, most helpful advisingrelationships are those when advisors know you and you know them! FYIis a great opportunity to start building this relationship and planninghow you intend to communicate.
Will I get my academic course schedule at FYE?
FYI is largely about getting acclimated to BFIT and learning how tonavigate this new place. Your schedule will be automatically generatedfor you and ready for pick up the first day of classes; each semester wehold a required check-in in the main lobby of the Union building. Ifyou have any questions about your schedule you can ask at that time. Itis important to remember that course work here is very regimented andsequential; most schedules within a major will look very similar so weprefer to spend the time at FYE focusing on other important topics.
What do I need to do before the first day of classes?
Order your textbooks!
It is also very important to come to your first day of classes fullyprepared. In addition to textbooks, you will want to have notebooks,pencils, pens, flash drives, and any other materials required for yourclasses. The BFIT Kite and Key College Store will also be well stockedwith supplies should you need something once here on campus.
