Adult Student Mentors
Transitioning to college life can be challenging. The Resource Center for Adult Students is committed to providing you with a great experience as you begin your studies at Winthrop University. Our Adult Student Mentors are here to assist you!
As a part of Orientation, Welcome Week, and throughout the semester, you’ll be matched up with an Adult Student Mentor – who is a post-traditional, veteran, and/or transfer student committed to assisting you in your Winthrop experience! Adult Student Mentors serve as a connection to campus by participating in Orientation, planning social events to help you build relationships, and answer any questions you may have about campus life.
As a post-traditional, veteran, and/or transfer student, you have specific concerns and questions about your Winthrop experience. Who better to ask than another student who has been in your shoes? The Adult Student Mentors are available during the semester to meet and chat about your experience. Adult Student Mentors are available to meet in-person, chat on the phone, or answer questions via e-mail. Getting connected with an Adult Student Mentor is as easy as submitting a quick Mentoring Request Form.
