The First- and Second-Year Success Series (FSYSS) provides an opportunity for first- and second-year students to learn about the various programs, offices, and opportunities available to them at NIU. In 2014-2015 FSYSS events will start the third week of the fall semester (except for the Y2@NIU Kick-off event on Monday, August 27), and extend throughout the academic year. Although each session will be open to all members of the NIU community, the focus will be on topics, information, and services pertinent to students in their first and second years. We hope you will consider this excellent opportunity for your department to make a valuable connection with NIU’s first- and second-year students by hosting a program in the series.
