Student Mentor Program


The Student Mentor Program aims to enrich your undergraduate student experience by linking you with a more experienced student, a Student Mentor.

How the program works

Student Mentors are trained volunteers and are committed to helping you settle into university life in two ways:

  1. You may just need someone to answer a few questions and show you around campus. If this is you, catch up with a Student Mentor during the Orientation to USC period. They will show you 'how things work' at USC.
  2. Or, you may like help to settle into your studies. If this is you, register to be matched to a student mentor from a similar program or study area. Your mentor knows how to overcome potential challenges because they have 'been there, done that'.

What a Student Mentor will do for you

For the first six weeks of semester, your Student Mentor will:   

  • meet with you face-to-face, send you a weekly email or communicate via USC 101
  • answer general questions about the University
  • put you in touch with other students from your area of study
  • take you on a campus tour
  • give you a better idea about how to handle university study
  • provide you with information throughout the semester about the services available to students
  • be a friendly face on campus

What a Student Mentor cannot do for you

A Student Mentor cannot:

  • be your personal tutor
  • help you with your assignments
  • give you advice on course content
