- What is a Mentor

- Mentor's Responsibility

  • Assist in registration and Orientation for 8 days during the summer.
  • Visit two English 110 courses assigned to them in correlation to their paired mentor.
  • Attend a single office hour a week (in the FYI office: located in Honors Hall, room 05), the hour being a time in which neither of their English 110 classes are in session.
  • Customize and forward template emails and information to their students which are composed by the Freshman Year Initiative program Mentor Supervisors.
  • Work together with their English 110 teachers in a professional and respectable manner in order to benefit the students.
  • Provide students with vital college-life information and answer questions that have been proposed to them by the students in person or via email.
  • Provide selective tutoring to students during their office hour depending on the mentors' course concentrations (majors, minors & standing).
  • Provide students with guidance in terms of major and minor course paths:
    • Courses that fulfill requirements depicted by the general education department.
    • Courses that may fulfill requirements for students who have more than one concentration in mind.
    • Courses that the mentor may recommend from personal experience.
  • Provide students with time management skills.

- Mentor Application Process

    The FYI office invites students who have been enrolled for a semester or more at Queens College to apply for a position as an FYI Mentor for our program. The FYI program will begin the process of accepting and analyzing mentor applications from late February into the middle of March.
