First Year Council

Mission 

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 be able 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!

Applications will open in June for the 2020-2021 First Year Council, please check back for the application!
