The First Year Leadership Program or FyLP (pronounced 'flip') is a series of workshops offered each fall semester and open to all first-year students. Participants will explore their personal leadership style and learn to capitalize on their innate leadership strengths. Participants complete a leadership assessment, attend six two-hour leadership sessions, and experience the on-campus low ropes course. Emphasis will be placed on your personal leadership development.

For Fall 2017, sessions will be held on Mondays from 4:00-6:00 p.m. in the University Center Ballroom. Sessions will begin on Monday, September 11 and end on Monday, October 16.
