Peer Mentees

 
 

Your On-Campus Support network

Your first year in college can be a whirlwind.  It can be difficult to know where to go to seek resources and answers to your questions, or where to find a community, activities and opportunities.  

Scholars are mentees while they are in their first year of college.  They are matched with peer mentors (generally from their own campus) who are sophomores, juniors or seniors.  By building relationships with other Scholars across class years, first-year Scholars can build a community and gain access to new information and support.

Mentees are expected to:

  • Be available – respond to all communication outreach from your mentor, be interested in developing a sincere and supportive relationship with your mentor
  • Be proactive – reach out to your mentor and ask them how they are doing, remember relationships are a two-way street
  • Be committed – abide by program expectations, accomplish your goals
