First-Year Experience

Welcome to FYE at San Francisco State University

From the heart of a diverse community, San Francisco State University honors its legacy by promoting social justice and equity, and inspiring the courage to lead and collaborate. In the first-year, students forge and further develop personal, academic and community identities and literacies in dialogue with San Francisco State University’s history of social justice, equity and inclusion.
Successful first-year students enter their second year by
  • Having a foundation of social justice, equity and community inclusion
  • Belonging to our campus community
  • Connecting with our faculty and staff members
  • Engaging with a critical consciousness of themselves and their relations to others.
  • Understanding their roles, responsibilities and opportunities as an engaged student
  • Building a commitment to community, social and political action

At the core of their first year experience at San Francisco State University, students will be inspired to take an active role in their education because experience teaches.
