New Student Peer Mentors:

  • Show new students how to balance life’s obligations along with school to be successful in their education and show them the ropes of college life
  • Share strategies that have worked for them and help new students develop their own strategies for:

    • managing time effectively
    • effective reading, note taking, studying, and test-taking
    • proper channels of communication
  • In short, a New Student Peer Mentor can show new students what it takes to be a successful student.

How do I connect with a New Student Peer Mentor?
