"The ASC taught me the study strategies that have helped me succeed at RIT."
If you are an upper-class student (second year or beyond), consider becoming part of the Discovery/Pathways Peer Mentor program. Share your experience about the ups and downs of being a first-year student. Below are some common questions about the program and how to become involved.
A peer mentor is an upper-class student who works with an instructor to provide support for first-year students through the Discovery/Pathways classes.
It's up to you and your instructor to decide together. Some peer mentors make announcements about upcoming events, advise students about that week's topic, and/or give feedback to the instructor about lessons. Some students facilitate parts of the class themselves.
At a minimum, peer mentors will come to the Discovery/Pathways class each week, and usually they will meet with the instructor they are working with. On average, it will take 1-2 hours per week.
Although we can't make any guarantees, we do take your preferences VERY seriously.
