"The CEAS Peer Mentoring Program is a great opportunity for incoming freshmen to make sure they will always have someone to go to for anything! For current students, it's a great opportunity to meet new people and host events for the community. I personally enjoy being able to help our mentees especially during these times to help them stay informed and involved."
"When I was a freshman, my WISE mentor alleviated a lot of the stress I had entering this new chapter of my life. Because of the support I had, I decided to become a CEAS Peer Mentor to assist the incoming freshmen with their transition from high school to college. The CEAS Peer Mentor program provides first-year students with a community and many resources to help them succeed in their college journey. It allows you to connect with other students in your major as well as with upperclassmen who can provide you with advice."
"During my freshman year, I had so many questions about navigating through college and getting involved. I was fortunate to have help from upperclassmen in ASCE and I felt that I could pay it forward by becoming a CEAS peer mentor. The CEAS peer mentorship program allows incoming freshman to get advice from other students who were once in their shoes. I loved getting to know my mentees and I am happy that I was able to help them to the best of my ability.”
