Peer Mentoring

The vision of the Peer Mentoring program was designed to assist "Freshmen" and "Transfer Students" to experience a smooth transition under the didactic guidance of upper class men who had already been acclimated to student life at the Mecca.


The Peer Mentoring Program is organized under the auspices of Student life and Activities,Office of the Dean. It is strictly a voluntary effort by people who envision themselves as leaders or who have untapped potential for leadership and need a forum in which to express these qualities. Presently there are at least twenty mentors who are trained in various disciplines.
