First-Year Mentors

First-Year Mentors are students who assist their peer students in transitioning to Friends University. They are student leaders who represent diverse backgrounds and fields of study and will fulfill the responsibilities of assisting with the summer Enrollment Days, Fall Orientation and Spring Orientation. For each of these programs, the mentors are responsible for leading a small group and helping students learn about the Friends University culture, gain life skills to be successful during college and after, understand the academic demands, and explore new ideas and concepts.
