Undergraduate Programs

Peer Mentor Program

Each year the Department teaches several First Year Information (FYI) courses for incoming freshman biology and pre-professional (pre-medical, pre-veterinary, and pre-dental) majors. Juniors and seniors can be invited to work with a specific faculty member as their peer mentor for a given FYI class. These students help the class instructor to provide useful information about college life in general and being a biology major in particular. Peer mentors receive a stipend of $150 for 16 hours of class time. Please contact the department chair (Dr. Douglas Leaman) if you are interested in being an FYI peer mentor.
