Higher Values in Higher Education

FYE Spotlight

Brenna Smith

My First Year Experience success story is all about getting involved on campus and making Western my home. I did this by doing things that mattered to me and by trying my hardest to start my time at Western on a positive note.

My favorite thing about working with FYE is watching First Year students light up when they succeed and knowing that maybe, somewhere along the line, I had a hand in helping them get there.
