Residential experience

The First Year Residential Experience (FYRE) is a structured program within Johnson Hall available only to First Year Students. Living in this residence hall affords First Year Students the opportunity to become part of a special community while encouraging them to succeed academically and to get involved in the life of the campus and the greater community.

Students who choose to live in the First Year Residential Experience agree to participate in the learning activities sponsored by the hall staff, regularly attend hall council and enroll in the freshman seminar course GST 100.
