The First-Year Odyssey at La Salle
The First-Year Odyssey (FYO) introduces students to La Salle University and the city of Philadelphia through class participation, campus activities, and field trips. FYO gives students an opportunity to form bonds with fellow students, professors, and staff, while they become more familiar with campus resources and the rich offerings of urban life. FYO also helps students to master good study habits and clarify career goals.
Students earn a grade and one credit in the First-Year Odyssey. To meet the needs, interests, abilities, and concerns of students, students work together to design some of the course activities. When possible, students will seek out information and report back to their classmates on opportunities and resources available on the campus or in the city.
Participation in the First-Year Odyssey is required of all first-year students with the exception of students in the Honors Program
