Located within academic departments, CSSH Peer Mentors are upperclass students who guide incoming first-year students within their majors. Each department’s peer mentoring program looks a bit different, but the goal is the same: helping first-year students and transfer students feel connected to their departments and supported by peers during the first and second semester on campus.

What Are the Goals of the CSSH Peer Mentoring Program?

Each program/department’s peer mentoring program looks a bit different, but the goals for each of them are the same:

  • Helping first-year students and transfer students feel connected to their programs/departments
  • Providing peer support during a student’s first semester on campus
  • Easing new students’ transition to college/Northeastern life through peer guidance
  • Introducing and helping new students navigate opportunities on campus and in Boston
  • Building a CSSH community that spans across class levels (from first-years to seniors)
  • Providing examples of curricular, extracurricular, and experiential learning pathways by sharing stories of lived experiences
