What is a First Year Fellow?

First Year Fellows (FYFs) are live-in student leaders who serve in Mahoney, Pearson, and Stanford Residential Colleges that support students with the academic transition to college, assist with general academic planning and advising questions, connect students to campus resources, and serve as an academic peer mentor.

Virtual Information Sessions

All those looking to apply for a First Year Fellow position for the 2023-2024 academic year must attend an information session. In this session, you will learn about the position and have an opportunity to ask any questions about the application process and position.
