C.O.N.E.C.T Peer Mentoring Program

The Caring Of New students Experiencing College Transitions (C.O.N.E.C.T.) Peer Mentoring Program began in November 1998 with a mission to assist first year black students with their transition from high school to college. First year students are paired with upperclass peer mentors who serve as a resource and confidant. Our monthly workshops are organized and facilitated by the peer mentors, which includes topic origination. We encourage all first year students to participate in the entire process beginning at the summer orientation sessions during Making the Connection through the end of Spring semester.
