First-year can be challenging or daunting to some, but it is also a great time for self-discovery, to gain independence, and learn how to ask for help. We want you to know that you're not alone — many of your peers are feeling the same way, and there's support if and when you need it. Navigate RU will help ease your university transition and show you how to revel in the opportunities ahead.
