STEPHENVILLE, Texas—Tarleton’s first-year students will participate in the “Your First College Year” (YFCY) survey, beginning March 24. The YFCY, administered by the Higher Education Research Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles, is designed to collect data on the academic and personal development of first-year students.

“Tarleton first participated in the YFCY in 2008, then again in 2010,” said Dr. Michael Haynes, executive director of Tarleton’s Office of Institutional Research. “Used in conjunction with the Freshman Survey, which is administered prior to the fall semester, it provides a picture of student change over the academic year. The YFCY is administered online which allows students to complete the survey at a time and location of their convenience.”

More than 1,500 first-year students will be asked to complete the YFCY, which will run through April 6.
