Peer mentors are here to help new students transition to the University of Arizona, helping them find their Academic Advisor’s office, navigating campus resources and expectations, and connecting them with the right people. Peer mentors are role models, help students get involved on campus, and help them with challenges they encounter in their first year at UA.
What do Peer Mentors do?
Peer Mentors will meet with students to help them with a variety of things and assist with college-related events, including:
- Transition to the UA
- Humanities Café
- Destination Arizona
- Registration Outreach
Why become a peer mentor?
Being a peer mentor is an excellent opportunity to build connections with the University community, including faculty, staff, and students. As a mentor, you will gain valuable interpersonal skills, deepen your understanding of the University and acquire transferable skills that can be applied in various settings. Additionally, your interactions with incoming students will have a meaningful impact on their university experience. Furthermore, serving as a peer mentor also offers the opportunity to earn internship credits.
