What Are the Goals of the CSSH Virtual Mentoring Program?

Virtual Mentors serve as a key contact for CSSH N.U.in and NUStart students during their first semester. The goal of the N.U.in Mentor Program is to help N.U.in and NUStart students form a connection with the College of Social Sciences & Humanities before they arrive on campus in January.  CSSH Virtual Mentors communicate and meet virtually with Fall 2020 N.U.in and NUStart students throughout the semester and discuss topics such as academic engagement, registration, and transition to Boston.
