What our students say:
"My social skills, time management, career exploration, and overall courage has increased since being a part of this program and will be utilized in the future."
"I was able to have a mentor who supported me and listened to me. My mentor made sure I was doing well throughout my quarter. She is someone I can go to for support because I know she is there to offer advice and help me whenever."
"My participation in the program helped me gain a base for learning the basics of UCR and university life in general. It was comforting to have other transfer students around me that could sympathize with the change which helped me feel more confident in adjusting to the new environment."
"I feel as if my transition to UCR was much smoother than if I did not have a mentor. Furthermore, I was able to talk to my mentor about anything and ask any questions I had."
