Who Participates in Mentoring?

The Mentor Program is open to all first-year ALANA (African-American, Latin American, Asian-American, Native American) as well as all students participating in Passport. Groups of about four students will be matched with both a peer and a faculty mentor for ongoing conversation, advice, and friendship. You can participate in The Mentor Program regardless of whether you are coming for Odyssey, have a work-study job, or will play a varsity sport.

By participating in the Mentor Program, you are matched with a faculty mentor and a peer mentor. We will match you with these individuals based on your profile of your academic major, extracurricular interests, and background. Your mentors will be vital resources for your tenure at Holy Cross.

The faculty mentors are crucial elements of the program. These individuals also serve as your academic advisor. It is important to keep good communication with your faculty mentor. They are good resources for understanding academic procedures and policies at Holy Cross. These people will be available to you for guidance and support.

The peer mentors are upperclassmen who will play a critical role in the program and in your adjustment to Holy Cross.
