First Year Seminar (FYS) courses at Auburn University help new students acclimate to multiple aspects of university life. By taking an FYS course, students can learn about academic and personal resources on Auburn's campus, relevant social issues, opportunities for involvement on campus and in the local community, time management, critical thinking skills, study strategies, test preparation, note taking, goal setting, and many other topics and skills vital to college success. Most students in Learning Communities take an FYS course as a part of their fall semester block of courses, but FYS courses are available to all new students.
