ODU F1RST Peer Mentors

Peer Mentors

Adjusting to college can be a challenge. Wouldn't it be great if someone was there for you? Through the ODU F1RST-gen Mentoring program, students can engage in a mentoring relationship with a peer first-gen mentor. Our ODU F1RST mentors are well trained and serve as resource agents to assist first-generation students through their college transition.

Our first-gen mentors are diverse and come from a variety of backgrounds, majors, and college experiences. Students can meet with mentors weekly or as infrequently as they would like. Studies suggest that students who engage in mentoring feel more equipped and connected to their campus community.
