UCR rolls out Freshman Collective Peer Mentoring
The Freshman Collective is an exciting new mentoring program for UCR students who are entering college as a freshman. Students are matched with mentors who are there to offer guidance as students acclimate to life in college. Mentors will assist mentees in navigating the many adjustments that students often face when attending college for the first time.
Students are paired with someone invested in their success based on shared interests - a person ready to listen, inspire, help navigate challenges, and recognize opportunities. Students will learn what to expect in school, how to approach challenges, gain career advice, and valuable insights while mentors will build their networks and develop skills to become better professionals and leaders. Mentor Collective's online platform provides training and resources for student mentors and makes it easy for mentors and mentees to connect.
