Students helping students. Think back to your first semester on campus and all of the things you needed to know, or wish you knew. You probably had a lot of questions and maybe even felt a little bit overwhelmed.
This is why our Peer Mentoring Program is designed to take knowledgeable upper-year students and have them help navigate and support lower-year students through their university experience. The peers can guide students regarding everything from academic to health support, and encourage them to take part in student life and co-curricular activities.
