Answer your questions
Since you will be given a Peer Mentor that is enrolled in your academic school and/ or program, they are a great resource to answer program-specific questions. Your mentor is also someone who can answer other student-related or life-related questions. If they don’t know the answer they’ll either find the answer for you or lead you to someone who can answer it.
Introduce you to other first year students
The goal is to first build a relationship with your Peer Mentor. Then, to be comfortable enough that they can introduce you to other students, at events or around campus. Planning to meet up with your mentor at events is a great place to start.
Keep you in the loop
Each week you will receive an email from your mentor that will outline campus events, workshops, and they will check-in to see how you’re doing and ask if you need support. Your mentor will suggest the appropriate campus resources during different times in the semester (maybe the Writing Centre or study spaces on campus). Utilizing these resources and attending academic workshops is a great way to stay on track.
You and your mentor have the ability to set the tone of your relationship. Whether you choose to email, text or meet in person, you two are responsible for connecting
