What is it?
The Peer Mentorship Program is a great way to meet other students and get connected. New students will be matched with successful sophomore, junior and senior students who will assist in building the skills and contacts needed to transition into college life at WSU Vancouver. Peer mentors are committed to diversity and promoting community on campus. All new students are eligible to apply, but space is limited.
How does Peer Mentorship work?
New students and Peer Mentors will meet and communicate regularly throughout the school year. A few of the things that new students will do with their Mentors include fun group activities, study sessions, workshops, on-campus events or just hanging out. Most of all, Peer Mentors want to be a resource, a friend and someone to call when challenges arise.
Deadline to apply for a Peer Mentor: August 30, 2013
Who are the Peer Mentors?
Peer Mentors remember what it's like to be new at WSU Vancouver and want to play a positive role in the success of first-year students. They come from a variety of backgrounds and life experiences and have various career and academic goals.
