What is a mentee/Why be a mentee?
A mentee is a first-year student at University of North Georgia (UNG). Being a mentee will allow you to learn more about college life, have an easier transition from high school, and meet new people.
What are the minimum requirements to be a mentee?
A mentee should be a first-year student at UNG who is either a traditional student (recent, high school graduate, home schooled, or earned a GED), a transfer student, or a non-traditional student (who has not attended school in the last 5 years or more).
Where do I get an application?
How will I know who my mentor is?
We try our best to pair you with a mentor who will be most helpful to you based upon the preferences and information you submit.
How many mentees are assigned to each mentor?
Subject to availability.
How do I contact my mentor?
Once your Peer Mentor has been selected, the Coordinator, will email you the contact information. Because of confidentiality issues, it is the Mentee's responsibiilty to email the Peer Mentor as soon as possible before the first week of fall semester. You and your mentor will set up a way to contact and communicate with each other, most likely through phone or email.
What do I talk to my mentor about?
You can share pretty much anything you want with your UNG mentor. If you have any particular concerns or questions, you can also let them know as well.
How often to I meet with my mentor?
You will meet at least 5 times during the first semester. After that, you can continue to meet as often as you like. There will also be at least one event each month that all Mentors and Mentees will attend as a group.
