Themes of AU FYE Program

Common University Experiences
We define the Common University Experiences as those events that are required or compulsory for all freshmen to attend.

To ensure students success in study, the academic advising is a mechanism for students to consult with academic advisors on their study plan and academic programs in order to choose the right subjects and minimize any registration mistakes due to inadequate academic information and also to develop strong relationship with their academic advisors.
We define the Extra-Curricular Experiences as those opportunities offered especially to freshmen so that they may receive academic support outside the classroom, become aware of the variety of resources the campus offers, and actively engage in the community life of the university.
Unlike the Common University Experiences, the Extra-Curricular Experiences are optional. Students are encouraged to participate at their interests and abilities.
The Aim: Students become actively involved in the campus/community and receive specific support networks and information about resources that best meet their needs. Students see themselves as active participants and leaders fostering the standards and identity of Assumption University.
Project Information: Here is a fantastic chance to discover activities of your interest! More than 50 clubs open their booths to provide freshmen with information such as music, dance, photography, environmental conservation, oratory and personality, football and many more.
