Peer Mentors

Peer Mentors help new students adjust to college life, overcome obstacles in their education and in their lives, utilize campus resources, and take part in a college living environment. Peer Mentors help with airport pickups, Orientations, and provide guidance to new students throughout the first semester.

About Me: When I am not at school in Oneonta, I reside in Rockland County, NY. In my future, I would like to work with the international community in some capacity!

Something on my bucket list: Go jet skiing!

Why I wanted to become a Peer Mentor: I wanted to become a Peer Mentor because I desired to form new connections and learn from students from other countries. I also wanted to be able to support students who needed guidance during this difficult time of transition. I believe that it is an extremely valuable opportunity to be able to learn from people with different experiences across the globe!

Advice to international students: Don't be afraid to reach out and explore new opportunities! We are a friendly campus community with lots to do and see!
