Have fun! Get involved!
Peer Mentors are hired based on their character, their academic success and their involvement on campus. All mentors are connected to at least one, if not several different clubs and organizations across campus. One of their roles as a mentor is to help new students get involved and make friends. Academics are very important, but on American campuses, having a social life is also important. And it is crucial to get involved and make friends the minute you arrive here. There are so many fun events and activities to enjoy here at UO! Some things mentors can help you get involved with are: Coffee Hour, Movie Nights, Field Trips, Student Government, Study Abroad, Community Service, International Week, Student Clubs, plus so much more! Make the most of your time here, have fun and get involved!
