The First Year Leadership Program or FyLP (pronounced 'flip') is a series of workshops offered each fall semester and open to all first-year students. Participants will explore their personal leadership style and learn to capitalize on their innate leadership strengths. Participants complete a leadership assessment, attend six two-hour leadership sessions, and experience the on-campus low ropes course. Emphasis will be placed on community building.

Registration for Fall 2017 will be available in August. Questions about FyLP can be directed to Campus Life & Event Services or
