Student Resources and Services

Peer Mentor Programs

The programs below are part of the first-year peer mentor network that ensures all first-year students have access to a peer mentor.  A peer mentor is a more experienced student that provides ongoing guidance and support to first-year students and who is trained to ease the transition from high school to college by demonstrating positive student habits; they serve as a trusted resource, friend, and advocate.
