Peer Mentor Program

A Peer Mentor is a UW-W student leader who serves as a resource to new students during their first semester at UW-Whitewater.  Peer Mentors lead a group of new students through fall orientation, Warhawk Welcome, and assist an instructor with the facilitation of a New Student Seminar section.  Throughout the fall semester, Peer Mentors remain in contact with new students to answer questions and to coordinate fun activities.  If you're a freshman at UW-Whitewater, you've got a Peer Mentor!
