Mentorship Program

We need your help. The FHSU Alumni Association is launching a university-wide Freshmen mentoring program in the Fall of 2016. Join us in connecting with the newest class of Tigers. Studies have shown that students who feel a stronger connection to their university are more likely to be successful.

That’s where you come in! As a mentor to a first-time freshman, you will be asked to take an active role in helping a student’s transition to becoming an FHSU Tiger. Whether it is placing a call, sending a text or if possible, going out to lunch or sending a care package, you will show your student through your actions what it means to be a member of the Tiger family.

Mentors will be asked to complete a profile that will help the university match mentors and protégés with similar interests. In addition for student safety, mentors will undergo background screening. Prior to the program kick-off, mentors will have the opportunity to go through a brief training where a host of materials will be available to answer any question that may arise.

Are you ready to sign up? If so, please fill out the Mentor Profile form online. The Alumni office will then be in contact with information on the next steps of the program.  Know of someone who would be a great mentor? Let us know by contacting us at alumni@fhsu.edu or by calling 785-628-4430.
