Patriot Freshman Connection

The transition from high school to college is an exciting time for students. It can, however, also provide challenges. The environment is new, the expectations differ from high school, you may be leaving family/friends, etc. The New Student Programs office is here to assist you with the transition and help you to be successful during the first year.

One of the programs in place to help you is the Patriot Freshman Connection. The PFC is a mentoring program which provides a peer mentor to freshman students. Peer mentors are sophomores, juniors, or seniors who help new students find success during their first semester of college by sharing their knowledge about UT Tyler and the college experience. 

Peer mentors are responsible for groups of 15-25 freshmen. Mentors and freshmen are matched by major and interests. This gives group members the opportunity not only to connect with a peer, but also with other incoming freshmen who share the same academic interests. 

PFC Goals

  1. Assist freshmen with their transition to UT Tyler.
  2. Provide freshmen with a supportive environment.
  3. Increase retention of freshmen by connecting them with resources and activities to help them succeed.
  4. Connect freshmen with peers who have successfully completed their freshman year.
  5. Connect freshmen with other incoming students who share similar academic interests.
