Why did you decide to become an Arts Peer Mentor?
I decided to become a mentor in the RBC Arts Peer Mentoring program because when I first came to UFV I could have really benefited from such a program and now I want to pass what I have learned on to new students so they feel at home here.
What is the most rewarding part so of being a Peer Mentor?
What I find to be the most rewarding part of Peer Mentoring is seeing the improvement mentees make over a semester. When you see a student grow more confident and comfortable at the school it is a really good feeling.
Is there something in particular about the program that students should know or might find interesting?
Peer mentoring is about having someone to bounce ideas off of and help you decide what works best for you. Peer mentoring isn’t about someone telling you who to be or how to act, it’s a beneficial friendship with a peer that has been in University for at least 3 years.
Do you have any advice for first year students adapting to University? Tips?
Use all of the resources available to you at UFV, whether it is a Prof or the Writing Centre, everyone wants you to succeed.
