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/Transfer Orientation Leaders are here to assist you! These students serve in a dual role - during Orientation they'll guide you through your experience as a Transfer Orientation Leader, and then during the semester are available to serve as a resource in their Adult Student Mentor role.
As a part of Orientation, Welcome Week, and throughout the semester, you’ll be matched up with an Transfer Orientation Leader - who is a military, adult, and/or transfer student committed to assisting you in your Winthrop experience! Transfer Orientation Leaders serve as a connection to campus by participating in Orientation, hosting social events at the start of the semester to help you build relationships, and answer any questions you may have about campus life.
As a military, adult, 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.
The Resource Center for Adult Students recruits for the Adult Student Mentors/Transfer Orientation Leader position during the Fall semester. Students interested in learning more about the position should contact Katie Sardelli at firstname.lastname@example.org or 803/323-4786.
The Adult Student Mentors/Transfer Orientation Leaders serve to assist military, adult, and transfer students in their transition to and during their time at Winthrop University. As Transfer Orientation Leaders, these students work with the Office of New Student and Family Programs in the implementation of Spring, Summer, and Fall Orientations and Welcome Week/Weekend. Then, during the academic semesters, as Adult Student Mentors, they develop and implement social and educational programs for our populations, and meet individually with students to assist them in being successful at Winthrop.
