CARDS Connection

2017 SOSersCheck your UofL email regularly in July to get connected with your summer mentor and other great resources.

Even after a great New Student Orientation experience, it's common to have more questions throughout the summer before classes begin. First Year Initiatives makes it as easy as possible for you to get the answers you need and head into the start of the school year prepared to be successful. You’ll hear from your upperclass student mentor in July and August to get personalized summer support and the inside scoop on college life from someone who was in your shoes not so long ago.

If you attended Summer Orientation as a first time freshman, your SOSer will be the one emailing you, whereas participating transfer students will be paired with a Student Success Ambassador. They'll share their experience and advice on everything from what to expect from your professors to the best place to hang out on campus and around Louisville. Of course, they're also there to answer your questions and address any worries that crop up before school starts.
