In support of the mission of Snow College, the Peer Mentoring program seeks to provide students with an innovative and supportive learning environment. Mentors are selected, developed, and supported to allow for successful placement in a Peer Mentoring role. These roles will vary across departments and programs but all will have a foundation in student development theory. Mentors will provide guidance, encouragement, and positive student interactions to assist first-year students as they navigate the various transitions associated with attending college. Contact advising if you would like a peer mentor.
