The purpose of this institution is to pair one first year Student Support Services student with an upper class SSS student for the time of one academic year. By taking an active interest in teh life of a similar young student, the mentor will ease the transition into the Creighton Community for the protege. The mentor will also grow in leadership skills and responsibility. The relationship between the two participants will foster through group activities and personal interaction, and both will gain friendship and support. The experience of the older student will be transferred to the younger, and both will benefit.
