First Year Experience

Peer Mentor Program

Peer Mentors serve as a resource to new students during their first semester at UW-Whitewater, leading them through Warhawk Welcome, joining them in their New Student Seminar section, and checking-in individually. Throughout the fall semester, Peer Mentors remain in contact with new students to answer questions and help them feel at home on campus. 

If you're a freshman at UW-Whitewater, you've got a Peer Mentor!
