Compass Talks

Want to connect about your first year? Ready to make plans for your future on campus? Got questions? Just to want to talk to someone? Compass Talks are your opportunity to set up individual meetings with FYE staff to discuss goal setting, involvement opportunities, challenges or successes you are facing during your first year, and anything else you want to talk about during our meeting. Additionally, Compass Talks provide an opportunity to gain a mentor at UA.

Chelsea Ratcliff, Director

Feeling excited, scared, confused, or a multitude of other feelings? Me too during my college days! From building confidence in personal leadership to getting a grasp of tactics to be a successful student, I know you are one of UA’s many legends and it is my goal to be your champion of support along the way. 

Carrie West Harris, Program Manager

Looking for strategies to be successful? I was the first in my family to go to college so I love coming to work every day knowing I can help students navigate the highs and lows of college. You can talk to me if you need help with study strategies, time management, a lecture on the importance of sleep, or pictures of my doggos!
