Connect with the First Year Center!

The First Year Center is pleased to be your partner in launching your student into the Washington University in St. Louis community.  We serve as a primary contact for supporting both your first-year student and your family in the transition to college.

What to expect

We know that there is a great deal to think about as your student and your family transitions into the university. We have outlined the information you expect to receive throughout the summer as well as the timeline to ensure you and your student are prepared to join us in the fall. 

What we do

The First Year Center hosts a number of  events and provides resources for you and your new student. Below are some ways we help you acclimate to the community.
