Algoma U Launches New Peer Mentoring Program

(SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – September 30, 2016): Algoma University is pleased to announce the launch of the Peer Mentoring Program on campus.

Students helping students is at the core of the University’s new program, which partners upper year students with those just beginning their academic journey. This program utilizes the experience of students who have been actively involved in campus and have an understanding of university life and what it means to be a student. Peer mentors can help new students get involved on campus, help develop time management and exam preparation skills, help manage exam anxiety and stress, demonstrate how to increase motivation and decrease procrastination, among others.

Mentors of the program will act as coaches, role models, and helpful resources to first-year students.

“Our new Peer Mentoring Program is designed to help new students transition and adjust to university life,” said Tom Mauro, Director of Ancillary and Student Services. “We are committed to providing our students with the best student experience possible and ensuring they have the necessary supports to succeed.”

The Peer Mentoring Program space is located on the third floor of the Arthur A. Wishart Library in WW303. Peer mentoring sessions take place every Tuesday and Wednesday from 4:00pm – 7:00pm.
