Peer Mentors are an integral part of assisting first year students to the rigors of college. Starting with Orientation, Peer Mentors will be the new students all throughout their first year as they make their home here at AU. They are here to answer any questions you may have and offer advice on what’s what on campus. Along with assisting in teaching the First-Year Seminar class with the faculty mentors, Peer Mentors are here to help make the transition into college smooth and stress-free.
Faculty Mentors will actively engage one Peer Mentor along with a group of 18-20 new students (Mentor Group) for the academic year, with the purpose of facilitating a positive college experience by networking, providing accountability and creative ways of fostering community.
