The Office of First-Year Experience (OFYE) helps first-time UL Lafayette students develop the skills they need to be successful during their collegiate career. As part of the UNIV 100 First-Year Seminar course, OFYE hosts Cajun Connection at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters to give incoming freshmen the tools they need to succeed from day one.
During Cajun Connection, you will be with your UNIV 100 classmates, peer mentor, and instructor and get acquainted with the campus and the resources available to you (from tutoring, to academic resources, to finding your classes, and everything in between). You’ll have access to the entire campus before the rest of the 19,000 students arrive!
Because the information provided in Cajun Connection is essential to your success (and because we don’t want you to miss out on this incredible bonding experience), attendance at Cajun Connection is mandatory and will count as part of your UNIV 100 course grade.
