Our Peer Mentors are experienced ISU students who serve as a “guide on the side” for first-year college students as they transition to life in the college classroom and community. Each semester, our Peer Mentors are matched with a new mentee enrolled in a specific section of IDS 128 Thriving in College, Career, and Beyond. Mentors provide personal support to assist their mentees based on certified training through the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). Learn more about the importance of Peer Mentors here.
