Your First-Year Seminar Peer Mentor is your guide to your first semester at Tulane. Starting from your first class meeting in New Student Orientation and continuing through the semester, peer mentors help you connect to resources, find your people, and get out into the New Orleans community. Each peer mentor is connected to a TIDES or Honors Colloquium course and attends the class weekly to offer a consistent presence throughout the semester. The fall peer mentors for each class are listed under each course description.
You will first meet your peer mentor online, in the Welcome Wave portal this summer. They will also be one of the first students you meet face to face during New Student Orientation. Many of our First-Year Seminar Peer Mentors are sophomores so were just in your place last year.
If you are interested in being a peer mentor for the class of 2027, applications open in January. It is a great opportunity to grow as a leader during your second year at Tulane.
