Undergraduate Mentoring

Undergraduate Peer Mentors

Located within academic departments, CSSH Peer Mentors are upper-class students who work with 5-10 incoming first-year students within their majors. Each department’s peer mentoring program looks a bit different, but the goals are within keeping of similar standards:

  1. Helping first-year students and transfer students feel connected to their departments
  2. Providing peer support during a student’s first and second semester on campus
  3. Easing new students’ transition to college life through peer guidance
  4. Introducing and helping new students to navigate opportunities on campus and in Boston
  5. Building department and college community
  6. Providing examples of curricular, extracurricular, and experiential learning pathways by sharing your experiences

CSSH Circle

CSSH Circle is part of the undergraduate peer mentoring program and a college-wide community connecting first-year international students with upper-class leaders. The goal is Creating International Relationships through Collaboration, Leadership and Experience (CIRCLE).
