FYE Hall Orientation Camp 

Let the journey begin 

First Year Experience (FYE) @ Residence Program is a hall-based residential life education program for first-year students. It aims to smooth first-year students' transition and adaptation to University life.

All first year students who join FYE must attend a two days and one night orientation camp. During the FYE Hall Orientation Camp, first-year students will have chances to get familiar with UST campus, to meet with Residence Masters (RMs), other new students and senior year student mentors (SUGs) and to participate in a range of social networking and inspiring activities. Reserve yourself from Aug 18 to 19.
