First Year Experience
First Year Experience (FYE) serves current freshmen and new students as they are progressing through their first year at Southern. The FYE staff also assists new incoming students with setting up their accounts and registering for Smart Start and Fall semester classes. The First Year Experience Office will be open Monday thru Thursday 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Fridays 9:00 AM till Noon. Please contact 423-236-2575 for assistance or any questions.
While we are here to help new students find their way around college life, we also understand that it can be tough for parents who do not know what is going on. Our parent orientation sessions are geared to help you learn how to navigate Southern alongside your student.
