Benefits of having a Peer Mentor

There are many benefits to having a person "on your team" as you navigate your first year at Aquinas. Apart from offering academic advice, a mentor can help you:

  • Connect with resources that will make your college transition smoother.
  • Meet others with similar interests, backgrounds, and experiences.
  • Get familiar with your college campus more easily.
  • Overcome challenges and offer encouragement.
  • Identify clubs and activities on campus that will help you hone your leadership skills.
  • Learn to advocate for yourself throughout college.
  • Find opportunities to get involved in the Greater Grand Rapids community.
