Peer2Peer Mentor Collective

The Peer2Peer Mentor Collective program enhances student's college experience by linking students looking for one-on-one guidance from an upper-class student invested in their success. 

Student mentees will learn what to expect in school, how to approach challenges, gain career advice and valuable insights. At the same time, mentors will build their networks and develop skills to become better professionals and leaders.

We're all in this together

Become a Mentee

Students who are just starting out their college journey or looking for one-on-one support from a peer, can sign up to be a mentee. As a mentee, you will be paired with someone invested in your success — a person ready to listen, inspire, help navigate challenges and recognize opportunities.

Become a Mentor

Upper-class students who have successfully made the transition to higher education and thriving on campus can sign up to be a mentor. As a mentor, you will be paired with someone looking for guideance and support and you would be there for them as they adjust to life at BGSU.

Peer2Peer Unique Connections


How to Build a Connection with a Mentee/Mentor

When you sign up, you will be matched with a peer based on common interests, background, academics and professional aspirations – so you will have something in common right away.

Once you are matched, you decide together how you want to connect - by email, phone, text or in person - and how often you want to do so.

If you are struggling with how to start the conversation, try using some of these questions below:

  • How will my major impact my professional options?
  • How do I balance the demands of school, responsibilities and socializing?
  • How can I set myself up for academic, social and career success?
  • How do I make connections with peers and professional contacts?
