CRUISE Program Mission

Creating Rich Unique Intellectual Student Experiences (CRUISE) aims to prepare and engage new, incoming students through an on-campus experience.

About CRUISE

  • Connect with a Peer Navigator who will serve as your mentor
  • Receive support during CRUISE and the academic year
  • Build community and meet other incoming students
  • Learn about campus resources and student life
  • Participate in workshops aimed at your transition to Mesa College
