Psychology Mentor Program

Psychology maintains a student-run mentor program, enabling majors and minors to support each other throughout their shared study of psychology. Upperclassmen mentors are paired with freshmen and sophomore mentees to share their experiences and advice in areas such as course selection, research and internship opportunities, and tips for success in the psychology major/minor.
