First Year Experience


We will enlighten the mind, body, and soul of every student here at HT.  We also wish to remind you that Huston-Tillotson University is a higher education institution that is rooted in a family-oriented community.

The goal of the First Year Experience (FYE) is to empower students to be more academically and socially successful and persist at HT.  The First Year Experience (FYE) Program at Huston-Tillotson University (HT) is designed to assist students in making a successful transition to HT and college life in general.  The program begins with the new student orientation process.  Orientation consists of various activities which help students become more familiar with the University and provide an opportunity for team building as a class.
