Student Staff/Civic Mentors
The Civic Mentors are FYE student staff members who assist in planning FYE events and who are here to assist you in any way they can. They are knowledgeable sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have successfully figured out the in's and out's of college life and want to help new students do the same. To set up an appointment with a mentor contact the FYE administrative assistant Brooke Myrman at email@example.com.
FYE offers a semester-long, two-unit internship for students who are looking to be involved in FYE. They work closely with the staff and student staff to help plan events, provide guidance for first-year students, and develop programs which encourage first-year students to become involved in both university like and the community of Chico.
