First Year Mentor Program

Peer mentoring programs are shown to promote persistence, provide opportunities that encourage academic success, and foster a sense of belonging. The one-on-one model is designed to be student-centered and student-directed, allowing participants to easily blend their busy schedules with the requirements of the program.

The James Madison First Year Mentor Program strives to:

  • Support First Year Students in their transition to James Madison and Michigan State University
  • Encourage successful academic and personal development
  • Promote student involvement
  • Enrich the connections of Madison students to each other, the college, and the MSU campus

This webpage provides information for first-year students who want to take advantage of the program, and advanced students who may be considering becoming a peer mentor.
