What is your favorite part about being a Peer Mentor?

I love watching incoming students bond with each other over the course of the FYS class and discover their independence. Watching them learn and grow together has been the reason I have continued Peer Mentoring for three years.

What is your advice for first-year students?

College is all about taking charge of your education. Get outside, meet people who are different than you, and try new things. This is a time of growth; remember that different does not mean bad. Every day is a good day to start fresh.
