My experience in fullCIRCLE has been a great opportunity to get to know other mentors who I didn't know as well prior to training together. The best part is that fullCIRCLE is an environment where we get to see tomorrow's leaders develop from nervous first-years into dynamic pieces of the SU campus in a closer way than any other organization.

Peer mentors are upper-class students who work with one to two first-year and/or transfer students as a mentor, offering guidance, consistent support and serving as a positive role model—critical factors in the mentee’s retention and overall success at SU. Peer mentors encourage deep connections with students and skill development in the areas of networking and organizational collaboration. Peer mentors also provide support for academic success and intercultural exchange.
