Peer Mentor

Program & Year:

Fourth year International Business with a concentration in Marketing and Trade and a minor in French

Why I’m a mentor:

From experience, I know that transitioning to life as a university student can seem daunting. However, after three great years at Carleton, I have found my place and love being a part of such a welcoming and diverse community. As a Mentor, I want to give incoming students to Carleton as much support as possible so they too can be happy and proud to be a part of the Carleton community.

Something I wished I knew in my first year… 

In my first year at Carleton, I wish that I knew about the Center for Student Academic Support skill development workshops. They provide many useful tips on how to become a more effective learner, plus if you do 5 workshops you will get a certificate on your Co-Curricular Record!
