Yessica Flores got lost on her first day at Virginia Commonwealth University. She was on campus for VCU’s Summer Scholars program and took a wrong turn and wound up blocks away from where she was supposed to be.
“Major, big-time lost,” said Flores, now a sophomore in the College of Humanities and Sciences. “And the GPS on my phone wasn’t working.”
Flores, then an incoming freshman, had only been on campus once before. She wound up calling Elizabeth Bambacus, Ph.D., the student engagement and summer studies administrator, for help.
