The "U-Turn" Experience: Student Comments

  • U-Turn was an amazing event. I got the help I needed and was able to really connect with my navigator without having any issues or misunderstandings whatsoever. I would highly recommend this event to other students who are struggling academically.
  • The advisors and staff are very helpful. They seemed liked they really cared about my success.
  • This event has so many amazing resources and tips on how to be successful at CSU.
  • To anyone that has doubts of withdrawing from a class: Go to U-Turn first. They will be able to help you make a plan on what to do next.
  • I really liked it. I feel like the resources they shared will give me a better chance at academic success.

What to Expect at U-Turn

  1. First, you will be asked to complete an online self-assessment survey which will help to highlight the areas in which you are experiencing challenges, as well as to identify strengths you can build on to enhance your academic success.
  2. Next, you will meet with a Navigator, a CSU staff volunteer who values student support and success. With your Navigator, you will review your self-assessment and develop an action plan for next steps.
  3. Lastly, you will be able to visit the various resource tables at the Academic Success Expo and talk with different campus representatives about what help their offices have to offer as you pursue your action plan goals.
