Off-campus Housing

Welcome to the FYRE!
The First-Year Residential Experience at SJC Off-Campus Housing

The FYRE program is designed to help all first-year housing students make a positive transition into living at The St. George Residence. This program focuses on the values of community, service and responsibility.

On move-in day, Aug. 24, you will meet your RAs who will play a key role in helping you to create a positive living environment. As the semester continues, you will take part in workshops specifically designed and tailored to your needs and interests, covering such topics as: healthy eating, positive relationships, stress management and finding a job or internship. Along with the scheduled programs, there are also a number social events spread out through the semester that will further enhance the sense of community with the other members of SJC Off-Campus Housing.

While students are encouraged to attend all of the social events, they are required to attend the orientations, workshops and one of the volunteer shifts.
