Peer Mentors provide support and encouragement to students.
Peer Mentors assist students with study strategies, course selection, financial aid questions, time management, finding campus and community resources, writing a resume, and more.
Peer Mentors help identify their mentee’s academic goals. They also help identify barriers and obstacles that students face and help their mentees by setting out steps the student needs to take to achieve their goals.
Full-time SSS staff are mentors as well.
Neither peer mentors nor full-time SSS staff are licensed counselors. Students in crisis MUST be referred to qualified professionals to receive counseling services. Call TRIO SSS at University Campus at (406) 657-2162 or UC Student Health Services at (406) 657-2153 to learn more, or call TRIO SSS at City College at (406) 247-3051, or CC Student Health Services at (406) 247-3027 to learn more.
Meet the Mentors at University Campus
I am pursuing a Master’s degree in Clinical Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling. I have lived in five countries and transferred into the program here at MSUB to complete my studies and do my field experience. I love working with the team here at TRIO SSS and the variety of students in the program. It is very rewarding to watch them succeed.
I am studying for my Master's degree in Mental Health and Rehabilitation Counseling here at MSUB. I am a former writing and STEM tutor from the ASC at City College, and I love working with students. I joined TRIO SSS to branch out of the tutor role and into the realm of mentoring. As a non-traditional student, I understand the impact everyday life can have on educational goals. My strengths are in task organization and time management, but I am always learning!
