The Peer Mentoring program at Buffalo State connects succesful upperclass students with first-year students to help them with the social and academic adjustment to college life. Peer Mentors are well-trained in a number of areas, including academic programs and social organizations/events offered by Buffalo State, campus resources, and college policies and procedures. Peer Mentors connect with their first-year mentees from the start of the fall semester through the end of the spring semester to ensure they are finding their way to academic success at Buffalo State.
Peer Mentors are assigned up to 20 mentees to work with throughout the academic year. Peer Mentors connect with, guide, support, and encourage their mentees as they adjust to life at Buffalo State. This is done through structured individual contact points, group meetings to discuss campus policies and procedures, escorting mentees to campus events, and maintaining weekly office hours. Peer Mentors also provide referrals to campus offices that may help their mentees succeed.
