  The summer CRUISE was very helpful. It helped me familiarize myself with the campus and introduced me to many resources.

- Priscila Chagolla, CRUISE Alumni

  The guidance that I got from having a Peer Navigator made it a lot easier to adjust to college life after graduating from high school.

- Al’Asia, CRUISE Alumni

  They did a campus tour for us and tried to make us comfortable, so I felt prepared to start studying at Mesa.

- Sean Ha, CRUISE Alumni

  The best part of CRUISE was meeting new people who I eventually ended up in the same class as--which is helping me now.
