Mentoring Program

The purpose of the mentoring program is to have upperclassmen provide support and serve as role models to students. The role of a mentor is extremely significant! Time spent with the mentee provides a natural opportu­nity for the mentee to observe attributes of a successful college student. The presence of a mentor will assist the mentee in making a smooth transition from high school to college, becoming a critical thinker, and maintaining a positive self-image.
