What is SAFE Voyage?

SAFE Voyage is a pre-orientation program for students participating in SAFE. If you participate in the SAFE Voyage experience, you check into your residence hall one week before classes begin, learn to navigate Charlotte’s campus, network with students and faculty, and be introduced to the many student organizations and departments. Your participation in SAFE Voyage automatically enrolls you in the SAFE Program. SAFE Voyage participants are matched with upper-class students who serve, not only as a mentor, but as a confidant, and friend. The SAFE Program is one of the best retention tools at Charlotte.
