Our First Year Experience office is designed to help our newest Pitt Panthers transition into our community – starting with New Student Orientation. Other programming consists of academic sessions specific to your school, the Student Activities Fair showcasing the more than 400+ student organizations on campus, and an epic class photo!

First Year Experience doesn’t stop after orientation week. We continue to provide activities designed with you in mind, like free movie screenings, volunteer and service projects, a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball game, and behind the scenes tours of the Career Fair.

Our First Year Mentors will serve as your guide for First Year Experience events. First Year Mentors are a diverse and enthusiastic group of upperclassmen who will help you build your connection to Pitt and make your first year here enjoyable and fulfilling. We can’t wait to meet you during Orientation!
