Peer Mentoring

Peer Mentoring at Fitchburg State

Peer mentors are fellow students here to provide academic and social support. In the fall semester, they attend class alongside new students enrolled in the First Year Experience seminars, offering advice, workshops, and office hours. In the spring semester, they provide regular Academic Success Workshops to support a wide range of skills students need in order to excel in college. Peer mentors lead a variety of activities throughout the year to help fellow students learn about campus resources, participate in campus social events, and develop effective study strategies.
