Want to REACH?

REACH is for first-generation, first-year college students from traditionally underserved backgrounds who are looking to learn more about how to navigate the college environment with the help of a peer mentor, and who are looking to build relationships with other students who want the same.

Like any mentorship, it requires a commitment from the mentee as well. REACH students are required to enroll in our UNIV (150) REACH for Success course, will have bi-weekly 1:1 hangouts with their mentors, and attend our free monthly social events. Our goal is to provide you with direct access to the tools to help you be academically successful and to have fun while doing it!

To become a part of this program you will need to do the following:

  1. Complete the quick and easy online application. (This application is not for mentors. If interested in applying for the mentor position click on "Become a Mentor.") Find our application on the REACH homepage.
  2. After you submit the application, we will send you a confirmation e-mail indicating that we have received your application. You will be notified whether or not you have been admitted into the program by June 1st.
  3. If admitted, we'll continue to communicate with you via e-mail about course registration into our required courses, and will encourage you to sign-up and attend Summer Orientation.
  4. Before the semester begins, you will be contacted by your peer mentor who will welcome you to the program and give information about REACH week.
