SES peer mentors serve Freshmen BBS and SSS students. Mentors are typically upperclassmen SLU students, many of whom are current or previous participants in SES programs.
Peer mentors help ensure SES students have a positive collegiate experience by:
• Modeling positive behaviors
• Utilizing listening and interpersonal skills
• Sharing knowledge of the SLU community and resources
• Developing and implementing programming motivated by the needs of the mentees
Mentors are selected during the spring semester and begin employment at the start of the BBS program in late July. Each peer mentor works with approximately 10-14 students throughout their freshmen and/or sophomore school years.
