Returning Students

 

For the 2014/15 academic year, returning TCU students are invited apply to be a Peer Mentor. Peer Mentors are students who have been involved in the TCU campus community and are willing to mentor a first-year student, helping them to discover and explore their personal leadership development plan while working through 8 leadership modules. Peer Mentors are often assigned 1-2 mentees and are expected to meet with each one for approximately 1 hour 8 times during the academic year (4 times each semester).
