Spring 2018

  • Whether graduating after the fall, going on co-op in spring, studying abroad in spring, or taking classes in spring, we hope fall peer mentors can maintain connection with their mentees by checking in with them every three weeks via in-person meeting, text, or email. We also hope they can invite and accompany students to the CSSH Research Forum traditionally held in late March.
