The following students have been trained and certified to be University of Wisconsin-Whitewater peer mentors:
- Lauren Skalecki of Trevor.
- Rachael Teklics of Trevor.
Each UW-Whitewater peer mentor is assigned a group of new students to help them get comfortable with campus, participate in activities and build relationships. Mentors help new students all the way through the first semester by guiding them through Club U-Dub-Dub, facilitating New Student Seminar courses and setting them up for social and academic success.
“I’m really proud of this entire staff,” said Marie Hornickel, coordinator of the Peer Mentor program. “In the short amount of time that I’ve known these students, they have proven their leadership skills and passion for helping new students.”
