Academic Peer Mentors are senior students that also recently transitioned to university.  They are here to answer your questions and help you adjust to your new environment.  Sign up with a mentor HERE.

What can the Academic Peer Mentors do for you? 

They can

  • Direct you to relevant campus resources and services
  • Support you to develop the academic processes you need to overcome intellectual, academic and studying-related challenges (how to make notes, plan and study) 
  • Provide you with academic support in the modules not served by Supplemental Instruction (SI) and tutoring.
  • Connect you to the larger NWU community, your  faculty, school, course and peers
  • Guide you to overcome personal, interpersonal and physical challenges 

You are not alone:  Meet the academic peer mentors
