Here's are some testimonies from our past and current Peer Mentors:
"What I like best about being an SOS peer mentor is the feeling I get after I have helped a student succeed."
"Before college and becoming an SOS mentor I was not the most outgoing person and was not great at talking to those I had never met before. Being a mentor changes that. Becoming a mentor has given me a stronger ability to converse with people one on one or a group setting in order to create better first impressions and build better relationships."
"I have gained so much knowledge through mentoring. I have learned about all the resources our University has to offer. I have learned how to work with different people and professionals. I have learned to be open and flexible. I've also investigated new learning strategies, and become a better student myself."
"As a student, mentoring is the best job you can have. Helping others stay in school and reach their goals is very rewarding."
"I love being a mentor because I love being able to guide my mentees to an overall happier, more organized, and more successful college experience. My mentors teach me things about life too, it is not just a one-way street when you're a mentor. My favorite thing about being a mentor is seeing improvement in my mentees both academically and personally."
