Our student Peer Mentors are at the heart of what we do. We carefully select experienced student leaders who demonstrate a deep commitment to helping others succeed to can serve as guides and catalysts for new students. These exceptional young men and women bring with them a wide range of experiences in campus organizations, co-curricular activities, cultural encounters, and academic excellence.
Peer Mentors are responsible for almost all aspects of preparing for and running New Student Orientation. They work with a small group of students throughout the experience. After Orientation, these Peer Mentors stay connected to their students throughout their first year of college to model great academic engagement, answer questions, help with challenges, and boost student success.
Our Peer Mentors also are an integral part of each first-year student’s FYE 1001 course. The Peer Mentors model academic engagement, support instruction throughout the semester, and are available to their students to help in all kinds of ways.
