Peer Mentors

Nobody knows the UofL experience better than our current students, and that's a big reason why peer mentor programs are so important.

Connecting with your peer mentor provides benefits like:

  • Regular communication and connection with fellow students
  • Introduction to academic & campus resources
  • Leadership opportunities through campus organizations
  • Resources to support successful college transitions
  • Providing a resource during your college career and beyond
Summer Mentoring

At New Cards Orientation in the summer, students starting in the fall semester are matched with a Student Orientation Staff member, who will guide you through that two-day experience and get you started off on the right foot. Your SOSer will continue to serve as a resource all summer long as your Cards Connection mentor.
