First Year Residential Experience

The Johnson First-Year Residential Experience program is designed to encourage a successful first year of college by succeeding academically and being involved in campus life 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 College Orientation and Success Course GST 100.

As part of the floor community, each resident participates in the development of a Community Living Agreement in order to have input in developing expectations for the floor. The first-year students of Johnson are also given the opportunity to be active in the creation of campus activities and policies by participating in area councils or serving in positions such as Desk Attendants, and Recycling Technicians.
