First Year Engagement Program

FYE Peer Mentor Program

The Peer Mentor Program is designed to help first-year students make a successful transition to the university. Peer Mentors will introduce first-year students to campus resources and provide personal and academic support. The mentoring relationship will empower the first-year students by promoting academic and professional excellence as well as responsibility for their learning experience.  The program will additionally foster a social support system for students that will allow them access to information about student activities and campus life.
