Welcome to NAVCAL

The NAVCAL fellowship assists incoming nontraditional students in navigating the University of California, Berkeley campus through a near-peer/student-to-student approach—where current students coach and mentor incoming students and pass down their own knowledge and experiences to help incoming students adjust themselves into higher education. 

NAVCAL has a very special place in my life. I have met amazing people here at NAVCAL and have built a community of friends. My peers achievements inspire me to do better, and our shared obstacles/life problems make me feel not alone. NAVCAL is truly the community that I have been searching for.
