The Peer Mentor Program will be hosting its Mix & Match: Annual Convocation on Fri. Sept. 6th at 4pm in the Witherspoon Student Center Rm. 126. This event serves as an opportunity to welcome our student mentor and mentee participants for the new academic year. If you would like to participate in the Peer Mentor Program please contact Mary Medina at email@example.com. The mentoring relationship is designed to foster a network of support for first year students from culturally diverse backgrounds at NCSU. Mentors serve as peer support personnel for these freshmen (Mentees) and share program goals and responsibilities aimed at ensuring the retention of these particular student groups.
