A Peer Mentor is a UW-W student who serves as a resource and mentor to a group of freshmen during their first semester on campus. The Peer Mentors meet their group during Club U-Dub Dub. During this two-day fall orientation program, the Peer Mentors provide leadership for the group as they participate in numerous events and activities. If a freshman has enrolled in the New Student Seminar, their Peer Mentor will be a part of the NSS class and assist the instructor. During the first semester, Peer Mentors will make contact with students in their group to check in and make sure that all is going well. Students can make contact with their Peer Mentor as well to get answers to their questions. Peer Mentors also coordinate fun activities and get-togethers for their student group so that they stay in touch over the semester. If you're a freshman at UW-W, you've got a Peer Mentor. Be sure to get to know this student leader as well as the other freshmen in your group during your first semester on campus!
