First Year Leadership Experience

Looking to get involved at UVa, but don’t know where to start? Becoming a part of the First Year Leadership Experience (FYLE) will help you develop a robust set of practical leadership skills, meet motivated student leaders, faculty, and staff from all across Grounds…  and get to know your neighbors from the Class of 2014!  In order to get involved with the FYLE you need to be elected as one of seven leaders from within your Association.  These elections are different from most elections in high school in that you will NOT be running for any specific position.  You will be running on a platform of commitment to your community and personal leadership potential.  We will help you find the right position within the FYLE at a daylong retreat on September 11th.  Visit for more information.
