Peer Mentors

Advising at Fairhaven


Our Peer Mentors are current Fairhaven College students who help welcome and acclimate new students to the college. They provide new students with advising information particular to Fairhaven College-- our processes, resources and degree planning--serving as leaders and community-builders. Peer Mentors help acclimate and welcome new students to Fairhaven College by helping plan, organize and conduct Fairhaven's New Student Orientation activities and continue their connection with new students by serving as mentors in the quarterly FAIR 101A, Introduction to Interdisciplinary Studies course which enrolls all new Fairhaven College students in their first quarter. Peer Mentors teach workshops on degree planning, independent study planning and Fairhaven's narrative assessment process as part of the FAIR 101a class. Outreach Peer mentors also give tours of Fairhaven and help with Explore Fairhaven Week in February.
