A Macaulay Peer Mentor leads their group through the first day of Orientation. Beyond that their role continues to guide students through their first academic year, organize meet-ups, and continue to foster community within their cluster.
Graduating seniors tell us that orientation is one of the most important events they attended as Macaulay students. Help continue this tradition by leading small groups of incoming students in team building activities.
What is a Peer Mentor?
- A confidant, guide, academic resource, coach, role model, and friend.
- Entrusted with facilitating the care, support, and learning of new and continuing students.
- Knowledgeable about campus resources, policies, and culture.
- Willing to share information, experiences, and accomplishments in a non-competitive way.
- Open, understanding, and approachable.
Current Macaulay students who are good communicators, patient, enjoy facilitation or event planning, appreciative of different learning styles.

“Volunteering is a wonderful way to meet students from all different campuses and help people entering Macaulay. It is also a fun way to fulfill part of the community service requirement. “
