About us

Our Peer Mentors are successful upper-classmen who want to help you have a memorable college experience, starting with your freshmen year.


Our mission is to build community, and facilitate a support network for first-year students.  We help ease your transition to the university, and develop your sense of self-direction by promoting learning beyond the classroom. We empower you to achieve autonomy while completing your degree.


We ensure that you have the opportunity to succeed, and to enjoy yourself while at the university and in the Flagstaff community.


We strive to connect you with people, departments, and other resources on campus and in the Flagstaff community.
