What is the First-Year Islander (FYI) Conference?

The First-Year Islander (FYI) Conference takes place at the end of each spring semester and is an opportunity for first-year students to participate in a formal academic conference. Students interested in presenting at the FYI Conference are required to submit proposals to be evaluated by a panel of faculty judges.

Students who are selected to present at the conference will have the opportunity to present their work to TAMU-CC students, faculty, and staff. Beyond the honor of being accepted to present, students who are selected as FYI Conference presenters gain invaluable experience that they can bring with them into their future academic and professional careers. In addition, presenting at an academic conference as a first-year student is a unique addition to students’ resumes that sets them apart from their peers.
