New Student Mentors

The New Student Mentor (NSM) Program is a paid leadership program in the Albers School of Business and Economics. It consists of a selected group of nine junior and senior Business students who provide academic advising and mentoring to first-year Business students, as well as host quarterly events to keep the freshmen connected to the Business School. New Student Mentors serve as role models and work closely to assist the freshmen advisees in their transition to college so that the “first year experience” is a good one. Many of the New Student Mentors are in this position now because of the positive experience they had with their New Student Mentors when they were freshmen in the Albers School. The New Student Mentors represent what an Albers student is to both the internal and external community.

NSM Mission

The New Student Mentor Program will play a significant role in fostering the retention, academic success, and professional development of Albers Freshmen. We will work effectively as a team to meet these goals through mentoring activities that encourage academic and personal growth of participating students in a safe and friendly environment.

The New Student Mentor program is a unique way to become involved with the future of Seattle University and our community. With our warm hearts, we welcome freshman students for the 2017-2018 academic year.
