Peer Mentoring Program: First-Year Mentee Registration by Sept. 7

PUBLISHED DATE: Wednesday, July 25, 2018
Whether it’s juggling a busy class schedule, figuring out how to study effectively or balancing a social life, adapting to university will be an exciting challenge. That’s why we have a peer mentoring program. No one knows how to successfully navigate university life better than a student who has gone through it too.
 
We connect first-year students (mentees) with senior students (mentors) trained to help with the transition into university life. The mentor will be a support network, listen non-judgmentally, assist with goal setting and connect first-year students with opportunities on campus. Mentors and mentees meet once a week to touch base, talk about any challenges and build connections.  

Rewards for Peer Mentees
  • Manage stress and maintain a sense of well-being
  • Feel a sense of belonging on campus
  • Receive academic support like study skills and time management
  • Develop meaningful connections with other students, staff and faculty members
  • Increase awareness and use of support services
