Helping First-Year Students Make a Successful Transition
The First-Year Eagles Peer Mentorship Program is designed to assist incoming students in making a successful transition in and outside of the classroom. Highly qualified peer mentors will be placed in each FYE (First-Year Experience) class. Mentors will support first-year students in their academics, assist them in locating resources, and encourage them to become involved on-campus and take pride in being a Golden Eagle. Mentors have not only experienced their first year and all of the challenges that come with it, such as: feeling home sick, changing or developing study habits, and more, they will also go through peer mentorship training to be better prepared to support their mentees.
Peer mentors will:
- Be a positive role model for their mentees and their peers.
- Lead the way to academic and social success.
- Provide encouragement, support, and advice.
