IZUNA International Peer Mentoring

with other new IZUNA students and get a chance to learn from a IZUNA student mentor in this exciting, new program!

We are pleased to offer International Peer Mentoring starting in Fall 2018 to help new international students transition to life at IZUNA and make important social connections. In this program, each International Peer Mentor will be matched with a small group of new international students for one academic term (from the end of August until December). Mentors will be available to provide guidance and support, and will be able to refer mentees to additional services as required. An important part of this program is the fun group activities that will give participants a chance to bond with each other, starting with a program Kickoff Event on Friday, August 31!
