Freshman Leadership Institute


The Freshman Leadership Institute (FLI) is a prestigious living/learning community that prepares incoming first year students for campus life and the various campus leadership opportunities, all while serving as a home away-from-home during your transition into college. During FLI, students will interact with upper class leaders who are part of the Leadership Institute and also make lifelong friendships that they will carry with them throughout their college experience.


As a member of FLI, students will have the opportunity to take part in community service, social events, fundraising, and leadership events as well as, philanthropies, retreats, and other opportunities to help them develop their leadership skills.
