Seminar Peer Mentors

Connect with your First-Year Seminar Peer Mentor

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.

Your First-Year Seminar Peer Mentor 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!

Apply to be a First-Year Seminar Peer Mentor

The First-Year Seminar Peer Mentor Program is an academic leadership opportunity for upperclass students to serve as a mentor to our newest students in a first-year seminar classroom (TIDES and Honors Colloquium). Peer Mentors play a crucial role in the transition of first-year students to the academic and social communities of Tulane University. Starting from the very first class meeting during New Student Orientation and continuing through the full semester, Peer Mentors model a collaborative and inclusive environment and lay a foundation for success in the first year.

The job description is included below and details the full requirements. Peer Mentors serve for the full semester and are student employees of Newcomb-Tulane College. The Fall 2024 Peer Mentor ApplicationĀ is closed. It was part of the Common Application process available via the Mentor Institute on WaveSync. Applications for Spring 2025 will open in late October 2024.
