Have you gotten involved in something you care about on campus? Do you have a faculty/staff member who knows you by name? These are things that matter for your success at UA and FYE wants to help you get started on the right foot! Compass Talks are your opportunity to set up individual meetings with a professional staff member, graduate student staff member, or undergraduate student staff member to discuss goal setting, involvement opportunities, and challenges or successes you are facing during your first year. Additionally, Compass Talks provide an opportunity to gain a mentor on campus.
