▼   What is FYC?
First Year Council consists of a diverse group of first year student leaders striving to make the first-year experience at South the best that it can be. Working hand in hand with SGA, FYC seeks to empower first year students, help first year students grow as leaders, and provide first year students with a voice. Through FYC, you can form lasting connections with key administration officials, SGA members, and your fellow classmates. You’ll get to form new friendships with first year leaders just like you! You’ll also be on the fast track to becoming a dynamic student leader because FYC exposes first year students to important campus organizations like SGA, Jaguar Productions, and many more!
▼   What does FYC do?
First Year Council provides first year students with a voice. In the Student Government Association (SGA), FYC is the branch with a sole purpose of making sure first year students feel connected and important on campus. FYC is split up into several committees including Student Engagement, Campus Safety and Improvement, and Student Resources and Development. Within those committees, the members work on various projects to improve student interaction, civic engagement, and the overall campus in general.
