You may not participate in any other pre-orientation program nor work opportunity, since they all take place at the same time. If you are torn and have questions about whether FIP is the right program for you, please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
In FIP, we use a kinship system. There are about three upperclass leaders to every ten FIPers, and we call these groups "families." We mean that pretty literally; FIP families are all about care, nurturing, support, and connection, and your FIP "parents" are going to be looking out for you (even after FIP is over!). During FIP, you will do a lot of activities with your family and throughout everything your FIP parents will be your rock. The other leaders will be just as open to helping and supporting you, but of course they will have their own families.
Yes. Your FIP parents will reach out to you a few weeks before the program starts via email and Facebook (if you have it). Stay tuned to this website, too, because we plan to have various leader communications posted here as well.
Yes, as of right now FIP 2020 is still taking place—as the situation progresses, we will keep this website updated with the latest news. If anything changes, you will hear from us and from the College. We understand that this is a very uncertain and stressful time, so if you have any questions about your country's COVID-19 situation and FIP, please feel free to email us at email@example.com .
