Peer Mentor Quotes

"Being a peer mentor is a great learning experience about yourself, the people around you and the people you get to know.  It helps you learn a lot more about yourself." 
- Jihyon, Connect Peer Mentor 2010

"It is an amazing opportunity to pass on what I have gained at UNH.  It also helps me to contribute to the positive experience of incoming freshmen." 
- Crystal, Connect Peer Mentor 2009 & 2010

"Being a peer mentor provides you with an opportunity to guide others academically the way you were guided as an incoming freshmen.  When students feel college life is foreign, we help them adapt." 
- Richard, Connect Peer Mentor 2009 & 2010     

"Being a peer mentor has helped me develop my leadership skills, given me the experience in working with people on difficult issues and kept me involved in the Connect family.  More than anything, being a mentor has allowed me to meet many interesting people and grow as a person in a fun and energetic environment." 
-Eric, Connect Peer Mentor 2010
