Academic Mentors

Academic Mentors (AMs) are undergraduate students with valuable experience and specialized training to coach their peers on how to reach their academic goals. After meeting with an educational counselor, you may opt to work one on one with a mentor to:

  • Start studying smarter, not harder
  • Manage your time productively
  • Learn strategies to overcome procrastination
  • Improve your presentation skills
  • Manage exam anxiety
  • Navigate Canvas/myCourses
