Find Your Fit

Find Your Fit, or FYF, is our university’s new quality enhancement plan (QEP) that grows out of our university’s commitment to the reaffirmation process with our accrediting body, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, also known as SACS. At the heart of the FYF initiative is the design, implementation, and assessment of a new, innovative three-credit elective seminar titled Academic and Personal Inquiry designed for second-year students who have not declared major or who are in transition between majors.
