DOYLESTOWN, PA (12/14/2018)-- A team of Delaware Valley University upperclassmen was selected to mentor first-year students during the 2018/2019 academic year as part of the First-Year Peer Mentor program. Peer Mentors provide first-year students with academic, social, and personal encouragement as they navigate their first year at the University.
The First-Year Peer Mentor Program is integrated into the University's DelVal Experience course, a first-year seminar focused on college and career readiness that engages students as members of the campus community. Under the guidance of the course instructor, each mentor works with a small group of first-year students. Mentors gain valuable leadership experience, and first-year students receive additional support as they navigate their first year on campus.
