Peer Mentoring Program
The Peer Mentoring Program matches experienced upper-trimester students with less experienced students to help with their transition to Northwestern. Additionally, upper-trimester student mentors have the opportunity to be mentored by faculty and staff.

What do mentors do?
As a mentor, you offer students support with academics, provide information about campus services and procedures, and help them establish educational and career goals. You also offer motivation, inspiration, encouragement and a willingness to listen and care. You decide when and how often to meet and make it what you want it to be!
Being a mentor is a great way to make new friends and develop valuable connections with future colleagues. It also looks great on your resume and scholarship applications.
Peer Mentor Handbook
The Peer Mentor Handbook (pdf) is a useful guide for both mentors and student mentees. You'll find information on the roles and responsibilities of a mentor, peer mentoring objectives and listening skills.
