First Year Interest Group

First Year Interest Groups

The Moody College of Communication FIG Program seeks to create and foster collaborative student communities formed around majors and shared interests. The Moody FIGs allow students to participate in an environment that cultivates a path to student success and the four-year degree.

Comm Back on Track (CBOT)

The Comm Back on Track program’s primary goal is to assist students in getting back on the track to graduation by providing guidance and support. Regular meetings with academic advisors will supply an opportunity for students to develop a mentoring relationship.


Communication Careers Services (CCS)

The mission of CCS is to advise and assist students to understand and leverage their education and experience to achieve professional success. We help students identify their career interests, skills and priorities; evaluate and explore career options; understand how different industries hire.

Honors/Senior Fellows

There are multiple Moody College honors programs. Eligibility for one honors program doesn't necessarily qualify students for all honors programs as eligibility criteria varies by program. Students may qualify and choose to participate in multiple honors programs as long as they meet eligibility requirements.


Student Leadership and Organizations

Involvement in student organizations is a great way to make friends, explore career options, develop networking skills, and make an impact on the college, the campus and the community. Information on other organizations is available through the Office of the Dean of Students.

On Track Workshops

On Track hosts a variety of workshops throughout the semester that help students develop and maintain the essential skills that are integral to being a successful student. Although all Moody College students are invited to attend the workshops, some students may be required to do so by the Student Success Coordinator.


Writing Support Program

Our Writing Support Program offers assistance at no cost to communication students struggling with their writing. Housed in the School of Journalism, the program is open to all Moody College of Communication students, regardless of major. Peer tutoring, critiques and writing labs are available.

Student Success Blog

The Student Success Blog serves to provide students with up to date information regarding academic resources and campus events. It also provides a space where students can read about current research on academic development.
