Living Learning Communities
WSU Housing and Residence Life offers three themed communities: First Year Experience, Outdoor Adventure, and the Latter Day Saint Student Association Community.
First Year Experience (FYE) Community
The FYE Community is open to incoming WSU students who want to live their best Wildcat life. Linked with UNIV 1105 “Foundations of College Success”, this community will provide its members with the resources and opportunities needed to build friendships and the foster skills that will help them thrive at Weber State. This community will have a dedicated Peer Mentor, who attends class with the residents, plan social and developmental activities, and be a resource and advocate to the residents within the community.
The FYE Community will be housed on the third floor of Stewart Wasatch Hall, Wildcat Village, and is open to 20 residents. Interested students must register for UNIV 1105 “Foundations of College Success” (CRN 24004; MWF 12:30-1:20 p.m.; WH 322) which will be taught in Stewart Wasatch Hall. The course will cover goal setting, time management, study and test taking skills, critical thinking, stress management, academic advisement, career and major exploration, and using campus resources.
