The Office of First Year Experience aims to assist students in their transition to college life by supporting their academic, social, and personal development within an environment that values diversity and respect. Greensboro College begins preparing students for success the moment they become a member of The Pride. We are dedicated to providing a holistic experience for first-year students through the combined efforts of orientation, academic advising, residence life, first-year seminar, and athletics. The goal of the Office of First Year Experience is to foster academic success, a seamless transition to college, and a sense of commitment and community to the College while serving as a central resource for all first-year students.
The Office of First Year Experience houses two major first-year programs:
Pride Leaders are Greensboro College’s orientation leaders. Pride Leaders guide incoming students through PAWS and Welcome Week, our two orientation programs. As the first student faces that new students and families interact with throughout the orientation process, Pride Leaders work hard to show off everything Greensboro College has to offer its students. Pride Leaders set an example for incoming students and are Greensboro College’s student leaders!
Applications are due by 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 14, 2020!
