New Student Orientation

PEER MENTORING PROGRAM

Peer Mentors are returning NCCC students here to help new students who are looking for guidance from a fellow peer before and during their first semester. Our Peer Mentors will assist new students with adjusting to college life, academically and socially, and point new students in the right direction to access College resources. Interactions are student-driven and may include email, texting, phone calls, and meeting in person as needed.
