Freshman Leaders in Education and Human Development

About This Organization

The purpose of FLED is to connect and involve freshmen at Texas A&M University by providing academic, social, service, and leadership opportunities. We are made up of 18 staff members and 60 freshmen who strive to grow not only as individuals but as leaders and family. We are an organization that has the big team impact with a small family feel. FLED can also help professionally by giving members connections to academic success including tutors, study spaces, advisors, and career professionals. Our members say that FLED is one of the key reasons their freshman year was so successful, enjoyable, and memorable. We have a home on campus at the Byrne Student Success Center inside Harrington Tower. The Byrne Student Success Center provides all members of FLED with many tools, resources, and advice to reach their academic and personal goals. We have a conference room to hang out, eat lunch, or study in between classes. Having a home on campus makes it so easy for us to grow as leaders and as a family.
