You have made a great decision, now make the most of your college experience.
As a student of FM, you are becoming familiar with all the services and opportunities that are available to you. We hope that you are getting involved and engaged on campus. Have you joined a club yet? Have you attended at Student Government Association meeting? If you are thinking you would like to get involved, but have not yet made the move, visit the Student Activities Office in the College Union.
Being a member of a campus community carries responsibility. You are one of about 2,800 students at FM. As a college, we have made a commitment to embracing civility. Our civility statement reads:
“FM is committed to fostering an environment of civility. All members of the FM community and visitors have the right to experience and the responsibility to create and maintain an environment of mutual respect and support that is civil in all aspects of human relations. Civility facilitates professional growth and achievement and promotes an environment where each person can reach his or her full potential.”
A college campus is a place designed for the learning community to challenge ideas, embrace change, and learn about the greater world. Please keep in mind that this is a challenging environment and the views of others matter. Treat fellow students, faculty, and staff with the same respect that you would like to receive.
On June 20th, we launched a new student information system, which will enhance your overall experience at FM. One feature, coming soon, is My FM, a student portal that will allow you to access grades, look at billing information, and contains many other features that have not been available to our students in the past. Stay tuned!
If you find that you are struggling in an academic area, rest assured that FM is committed to helping students be successful. There are many opportunities for peer or professional tutoring available in the Learning Commons of the Evans Library. Take an opportunity to visit the Evans Library and ask about our tutoring services. We want you to be successful here.
