Find the Right Fit

The Life Sciences First Year Program helps students apply their studies to their personal and professional goals.

Welcome to the Life Sciences First Year Program

Launched in 2014, the LSFY Program at NC State was created to help life sciences students find the right fit in a degree program. Featuring Biochemistry, Biological Sciences, Genetics, Microbiology, Nutrition Science, Plant Biology and Zoology, our goal is to challenge students to think critically about what they are interested in studying and creatively about how they can apply their studies to their personal and professional goals.

Our Mission

LSFY strives to support and challenge students in finding their “fit” with choosing a major, transitioning to college, and developing skills to allow for success within their chosen discipline.  We value active engagement within our communities and foster students’ growth towards reaching their academic and personal goals.
