Peer Mentor Program
When each new student begins his or her time at McDaniel, they are connected with a “Peer Mentor” – an upper-class McDaniel student who is trained to help new students transition into life at McDaniel. Peer Mentors strive to build a mentoring relationship with new students, serving as a support system here on The Hill. The Peer Mentors provide an insider track to the community, share the plethora of resources available, and connect new students to answers they may need in the first year. There are different types of Peer Mentors to ensure that each type of new student receives the appropriate support: First Year Seminar Peer Mentor (for first-year students), Honors Peer Mentor (for students in the Honors Program), Transfer Peer Mentor (for Transfer Students) and International Peer Mentor (for International Students).
