Meet the Mentors

The First-Year Experience Program offers two mentoring programs in which knowledgeable sophomores, juniors, and seniors are available to assist first-year students with projects and coursework.

Civic Mentors

The Civic Mentors are FYE student staff members who assist in planning our public sphere events and who work with first-year students to complete civic projects. These Mentors work specifically with students in University 101 or University 105, but are available to meet with any first-year student who seeks advice. To make an appointment to see a Civic Mentor, call 530-898-3705 or email us.

U-Course Mentors

The U-Course Mentors support first-year students in the new U-Course curriculum as writing coaches, subject matter advisors, and project managers. They are present during every class session as well as outside of class to offer extra assistance with projects.
