FAQ About Peer Mentors

I have questions . . . could a Peer Mentor help me?

What is the School of Science Peer Mentoring Program?

This program is designed to help first-year and transfer students adjust to Monmouth University and to the School of Science. In this voluntary program you can be paired with a sophomore, junior, or
senior student mentor. Your mentor and you will meet periodically throughout the semester, both in one-on-one settings and in group activities organized by the program. Mentors have been trained
to give guidance about a wide variety of topics.

What kind of group activities are planned?

Peer Mentors will share their exciting summer employment experiences and advise you on how you can create one for yourself! In February the annual Career Choices Roundtable event allows students to learn about careers in science through direct contact with MU alumni and other professionals. Visit our School of Science Professional Development page to keep updated on upcoming events!

OK, I’m interested—how do I get a Peer Mentor?
