The First Stop Office

First Stop Logo


The First Stop Office (Center for the First Year Experience) is a central point, “home base," of support, connection, and welcome for all new first-year and transfer students at McDaniel College. 

The goal of First Stop is to connect students, in a “one stop” approach, to people, places and programs. New students are supported in their development within the offering of orientation, first year and transfer seminars, the Peer Mentor program, and overall programming and support for academic and social engagement in the college community.

The First Stop aims to build a strong foundational base for new students and support their development into a lifelong path of learning and success at McDaniel and beyond.
