FYC Peer Leaders

First Year Connections is designed to help you connect with the NJIT community - and is lead by its best advocates: our students.  We call our orientation leaders: Connections Peer Leaders. 

Peer Leaders are selected from our top student leaders.  All of them excel academically and are involved within the NJIT community. Your Connections Peer Leaders are here to support you - feel free to contact them throughout the summer with your questions.  We are all committed to helping you make the adjustment to NJIT.
