The mission of the Rising Knight Peer Mentoring Program is to help first year freshmen make a smooth transition from high school to college. We strive to increase student success and engagement by providing students with resources, encouragement, and guidance during their first year.

What is a Peer Mentor?

Rising Knight Peer Mentors are experienced upperclassmen who develop a supportive relationship with mentees, helping them successfully navigate their first year of college. Peer Mentors assist with the successful transition of mentees into the University by referring them to the appropriate campus resources and monitoring mentee success throughout the semester.

What are the benefits of a Mentor?

  • Make connections with NJCU staff and students!
  • Learn about opportunities for involvement and leadership on campus!
  • Participate in fun social events!
  • One on one mentoring opportunities!
