I love Kennedy Peer Mentors The Peer Mentors

Peer Mentors are part-time, live-in, student staff members who have a visible, active and positive presence in first year residence halls. Peer Mentors work individually and collaboratively to help first year students experience a positive transition to UMass Amherst, and assist in the creation of inclusive, academically-focused communities.

Mission: Our mission is to help smooth all of the first-year students' transition from high school to college. Our desire is to aid in the expansion of every first-year student's knowledge and to connect them to the campus in a way that makes them feel included. We want to help them find their independence and welcome them into the UMASS family.

General information

Academic Success Mentoring is the primary focus of a Peer Mentor's work, and is defined as providing students with assistance in areas such as time management, study skills, organization, test-taking skills, study group strategies, understanding a syllabus, using internet systems (ie: OWL, SPIRE, UMail, etc). Additionally, a critical part of Academic Mentoring is connecting first year students with academic resources including faculty/instructors, advisors, tutors, help centers, study locations, libraries, etc. Peer Mentors also implement programs and initiatives that provide first year students with access to campus resources, opportunities to connect to faculty and instructors in an informal atmosphere, and assistance with overcoming daily challenges in the course of their personal and academic development.
