Peer Mentors act as one of the backbones of the support system here at Bryn Mawr. Not only do they function as a liaison between students and the Dean’s Office, but they also help students maintain their academic, social, mental and emotional balance.
Peer Mentors are trained to help their fellow students identify and implement techniques for more effective learning. These techniques include developing strategic study routines, effective time management skills and note-taking, to mention a few. Additionally, Peer Mentors may advise students about seeking help from an instructor, analyzing a course syllabus or texts, course planning and selection, working in a study group and utilizing Bryn Mawr’s many resources.
Students can visit their peer mentor(s) during weekly office hours, as well as by appointment. Please check out the Peer Mentoring Services website to find out more about Peer Mentoring, the mentors, resources, events and walk-in hours.
