Resident Peer Mentor Program

The Resident Peer Mentor Program gives upperclass students an opportunity to support and create community for incoming first year students. The ideal Peer Mentor is an individual who can draw upon and connect students to resources within the house and across the Institute. Above all, Peer Mentors are role models for other students in their living group and across MIT.
