Peer Mentor Program
Growing up is hard!
- That is why there is the UNG Peer Mentoring program. It is aimed at helping new students smoothly transition to university life by pairing newly registered students with disabilities with current students who have demonstrated academic and personal success.
Changes can be scary!
- That's where peer mentors can help. Peer Mentors are equipped with all the right helping skills and important information necessary to help new students successfully adjust to college life.
We are a family!
- As students at UNG, peer mentors are family. UNG Peer Mentors can help new students develop an early sense of belonging to a peer group and the university.
Helping you adjust!
- Through this program, peer mentors can help new students acquire knowledge, information, and skills to be successful college students. Peer mentors also introduce new students to new people, places, interests, and ideas. Along with suggesting new sources of information, peer mentors also work to encourage new students to approach other people as resources.
A little encouragement!
- Peer mentors help new students gain greater self-esteem and confidence as college students by supporting them and listening to their ideas and concerns.
