Student Programs - Peer Mentors are upperclassmen selected from a group of applicants. The two main components of the First Year Experience are mentoring relationships and classes. Each new student is connected with a peer mentor and a faculty mentor. In addition, each new student takes a First Year Seminar class in the fall and a Liberal Arts Seminar in the spring. “Students are placed into mentor groups with a group of their classmates,” said Associate Dean of Students Dean Branson. “We give them a cohort-based experience. The faculty and peer mentors work together to team-teach the fall course.” Peer mentors also provide assistance to the faculty mentors. They send reminders to the students about upcoming meetings, what assignments are due, and answering any questions they may have about the class.
