The Peer Mentoring program at Buffalo State connects successful upper-class students with first-year students to assist 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.
The Peer Mentoring Program offers several benefits:
connection to a group of other first-year students who have similar majors or interests
mentees receive guidance, support, and encouragement from Peer Mentors during the transition to college life at Buffalo State
provides mentees with educational, campus resource, student organization, and team building opportunities
connects mentees to other campus offices that may help them succeed
all of the above items are at no additional cost to the student
(Note: If you are an EOP, Honors, or Student Athlete student you will be unable to participate in this program due to time conflicts with these program requirements.)
Peer Mentors are available for office hours from 9:00am-5:00pm Monday through Friday. Please visit Southwing 510 for a complete schedule of availability and to seek advice from a Peer Mentor.
For questions on Peer Mentoring please contact Dr. Ashley Martin, Director of Student Achievement Programs, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
