Who is a Mentee?

A mentee is a first-time college student who would like to make a positive transition into the academic and social life by engaging in collegiate building experiences. This program is for students who are new to the College and who:

  • Need more guidance and support;
  • Want to get involved in activities on campus;
  • Are anxious about making new friends; and
  • Are interested in learning about available free academic support.

Does it cost anything to participate in the program?

The program is FREE. The costs associated with extra activities that each mentor and mentee may choose to do together on or off campus will be the responsibility of the mentor and/or mentee.

How long does the mentor/mentee relationship last?

The relationships officially lasts throughout the end of each semester. Although the official program ends at the close of each semester, many mentor/mentee relationships last much longer. Many build friendships that last throughout the rest of their college experience and some that will last for the rest of their lives. It is up to you!
