Peer Mentors are elite student leaders devoted to encouraging and assisting first-year students in a successful transition to college.
Peer Mentors are assigned to the sections of IST123: Success 101 (T) to provide in-class support to first-year students. In addition, the Peer Mentors hold office hours Monday through Friday, 9:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M., in B-220, the Peer Mentor Drop-In Center. Students are encouraged to visit B-220 to meet with their Peer Mentor for social and/or academic support or to connect with other peers in the Program.
1-2-3 Connect students are eligible to apply for the coveted (paid) Peer Mentor position after the successful completion of their first year in the 1-2-3 Connect: First Year Experience Program. Serving as a Peer Mentor is a wonderful way to build your resume while acquiring leadership skills and recognition on campus.
