First-Year Mentors

FYM Applications Now Closed

Applications to serve as a First-Year Mentor (FYM) for Orientation 2020 are now closed.

Current Students

First-Year Mentors are crucial to our program and the incoming student experience. We would love to have you join our team! Through our one-week training program prior to Orientation, you will learn more about our institution and community while making meaningful relationships with other mentors. After training, you’ll be able to share your new knowledge and your personal experiences with our incoming first-year students.

New Students

Your First-Year Mentor, or FYM, is a current undergraduate student volunteer who will help guide you and approximately 15-20 other students through the whole of New Student Orientation. They will help facilitate discussions about diversity and inclusion, academic advising, and staying healthy while living on campus. They were in the same shoes only a year or two ago, and they’re ready to answer any question you may have coming onto campus for the first time.
