You may be familiar with the class FYE, which stands for the First-Year Experience. But what about after FYE? What comes next?

Emily:I am currently a junior marketing major with a concentration in cosmetics.
Tessa: What is your club about?
Emily:This program helps plan events to get students involved with other sophomores and transfer students, as well as to help students gather more information about LIM.

Emily:We have just recently done a game night on zoom, but in the past, we have held mixers, movie nights, chat and chews, and so much more!

There are not necessarily meetings, but we have tried to hold events at least once a month.

Tessa: Anything else people should know about the club?
Emily:We are here to help support students, and they can always rely on us for answers or help with anything they might need!
