Peer Mentors are upper-class students who play a vital role in helping new students transition to the College community. They serve as supports and role models while creating a welcoming and informative environment for first-year students. Through the Academic Planning Seminar (APS), peer mentors are paired with a faculty member and assigned to work with incoming first-year students who share similar academic interests. Completion of a training program focusing on student development, transition issues, college policies and educational requirements, and student services is required.

Steps to Eliminate Probationary Status (or STEPS) is a program that assists students who are struggling academically. It aims to help students identify study habits and time management skills that can help them study and learn more effectively, and bring up their GPA. Students meet once a week to discuss their strengths and weaknesses, and identify methods to succeed academically. If your grades have placed you on Probationary Academic Status, you are required to participate in the program. However, if you are simply concerned about your grades and your study habits, please contact Joshua Hine to set up an appointment to discuss what you can do to improve. Taking a preventative approach can really make a difference!
