The Smile Squad is a club whose members take charge of welcoming and guiding new students at Monsters University. They are recognized by their yellow t-shirt.


The name of all members ends with a "ay" sound, and so do their lines in the film.

  • Jay: He contacts incoming students and directs them to the registration hall.
  • Kay: At the registration table.
  • Trey: In charge of taking the photo for a student's I.D. card.
  • Fay: She gives new students an orientation tour of the university's facilities.
  • Ray: He is stationed at the dorms and assigns new students their room.


The smile squad appear when Mike enters Monsters University for the first time. He is greeted by them and given information about the institution.
