Challenge

Connect new students and mentors to strengthen the community on campus.

The Why?

Although there are resources available for students in every major such as career advisement, faculty office hours, and extracurricular activities such as student government and clubs, students have expressed a lack of community on campus.

Research

According to USNews.com, 100% of students who attend City Tech are commuters. Most students come to class and leave right after, not spending a lot of time in between to connect with others.

What are the users needs?

There are incoming freshman & transfer students who need:

• Help finding classrooms
• Have special needs (visually/hearing impaired, learning disabilities like dyslexia, ADHD
• Help using school technology (i.e. wifi, computer labs, printing) • Guidance in developing short/long term goals, personal and career-wise
• Help building relationships with peers • Help finding community on campus
