Why Connect with a Mentor

The first few weeks of university is filled with lots of exciting and new opportunities. Mentors are helpful in navigating all the new information.

Connecting with a Peer Mentor means you will have someone to answer all your questions, someone to help connect with campus resources, help you learn more about your program, and how to get involved on campus. FYC Peer Mentors are trained in providing great resources and support for first year students, and help you achieve a great start here at Carleton.

How Does it Work?

Students are paired with an upper year student who is in a similar academic program as yourself and has the skills needed to help you along your way as you get adjust to your new community. You will meet with your Mentor weekly from the first week of September until the October Reading week.

How Can I Register?

Registration for the First Year Connections program, a mentorship program for new and first year students and occurs during the first six weeks of the Fall semester, is now closed. Please sign up for the Community Connections mentorship program if you are still in search of a mentor for this year.
