Residential Peer Mentors Program
The Residential Peer Mentor is an undergraduate student working along side other RPMs in their building to support and create community for their mentees (first year students). The ideal RPM is an individual who can draw upon and connect students to resources within in the house and across the institute. Above all, RPMs are role models for other students living in their living group and across MIT.
Applications are now open through 4/21/17. Apply here: https://tinyurl.com/mitrpm1718
