Rising Knight Peer Mentors are experienced upperclassmen who develop meaningful relationships with their mentees. Peer Mentors attend bi-weekly trainings to develop strategies to alleviate initial isolation, increase student involvement, and providing mentees with encouragement to strive for success. Peer Mentors assist with the successful transition of their mentees into the University by communicating with them throughout the year, identifying personal challenges, and referring student issues to SOAR staff for timely intervention.
