Peer Student Mentors
TRIO-SSS Peer Student Mentor will help to help achieve the program's goal of increasing retention and graduation rates of all Success at Southern/TRIO-SSS participants. They will share personal interests, provide additional support, and help you to adapt to university life, among other challenges that you and your mentor can work on together.
TRIO-SSS has hired Peer Student Mentors to work with TRIO-SSS students. Peer mentors are successful TRIO-SSS students who have been chosen to help guide you to be the best student you can be. Peer Student Mentors can guide you, student, to the student through helping connect you to campus resources, talking about campus challenges, sharing ideas and tips on study and organization and so much more.
You can ask your TRIO-SSS Advisor to refer you to our TRIO-SSS Peer Student Mentors. This service is exclusively for TRIO-SSS students.
