FYE is Hiring for Peer Mentors!

We are happy to announce that we are hiring for FYE Peer Mentors for the 2024-2025 academic year! Peer Mentors are instrumental in providing support for FYE students. In short Peer Mentors provide encouragement and guidance to help first year students’ transition to college life. In addition, they help to connect students to the campus to be engaged and guide them to the appropriate services. They will also help with programmatic duties such as front desk coverage, assisting with FYE & campus events, outreach/recruitment, and other responsibilities as needed. The Peer Mentor position is a great way to get back and is flexible.
