FYE Peer Mentors are trained to help new freshmen and transfer students acclimate to life at Queens College. During weekly office hours held throughout the Fall and Spring semesters, they offer one-to-one support in
  • Creating personal time management plans
  • Preparing study materials for midterms and finals
  • Choosing majors and minors
  • Designing schedules for next semester with Degreeworks
  • Navigating campus services—including instructors’ office hours—and student organizations

Check out our full list of appointment campaigns for the semester here!

Students can make appointments with mentors by emailing fye@qc.cuny.edu or a specific mentor directly. We also welcome drop-ins during our Online and In-Person Office Hours. If you’d like to read more about the mentors’ majors and interests or find a mentor’s email, their bios are here.

Faculty are welcome to refer students to FYE. We can extend personal invitations to meet with mentors to students who may benefit from talking to peers about how to thrive on campus.
