USF Mentor Collective

The USF Mentor Collective program welcomes new first-generation students by linking them one-on-one with an upper-division peer mentor. Student mentees are paired with a fellow Don to ensure in their success at USF— a person ready to listen, motivate, help work through challenges, and take advantage of all the opportunities available to them

New first-generation students will learn what to expect in the classroom, how to approach challenges, get to know San Francisco, its neighborhoods, cultures, and all the things that make USF the City's University.

How it works: 

Incoming students are matched with a peer mentor based on common interests, backgrounds, academics and professional aspirations. To get started, mentees and mentors register and complete an online survey to create the best matches according to their interests and experiences.
