The "O" Peer Program Mentors Program Application 2018-2019 (For Mentees)

This Form is due by July 25, 2018

About the Peer Mentors Program

The Peer Mentor Program is a student-led, peer-advisor program that provides support for interested first-year and transfer students at Tulane University. Mentors are upper-class students assigned to assist first-year students’ transition to college. The commitment is one academic year. The program stimulates discussion of issues that affect people of all backgrounds, cultivates student leadership, builds a stronger, more diverse community, and encourages students to participate fully in the campus life. 

Peer Mentees will: 

  • Be contacted bi-weekly by assigned mentor.

  • Learn about opportunities to become acclimated to the campus and New Orleans area, as well as to develop your personal, academic, social and cultural experiences through programming and guidance.

  • Engage a series of events and activities during the year to nurture relationships with mentors and get access to specific and valuable information about campus life.

  • Participate in the Peer Mentor Program Matching Ceremony, and 4 Mentoring Socials throughout the academic year.

  • Be part of a cluster of peer mentors and first year students who share your interests both socially and/or academically.
