We understand that coming to a new place has its challenges and facing the unknown can cause some stress.  Our Peer Mentor Program will help ease your transition to CU Boulder!

Our Peer Mentors are in their junior and senior years and are hand selected and eager to help guide and teach you things about your new adventure in life.  Every new Environmental Engineering student is matched with a peer mentor.

Throughout the year they will work with you in small groups to show you the ropes!  You will meet during orientation and your EVEN 1000 Intro to Environmental course and they will stay in touch throughout the semester via email.

Peer Mentors groups consist of 6-8 students that live in the same residency or nearby.  This is also where your Peer Mentor lived their first year.  This means that you will get to know more people in your living space at a faster pace and they are interested in the same major as you.

You and your Peer Mentor Group could be heading out to an informal dinner before your first mid-terms!  Listen to their advice! Study! They may gather your group for a lecture, concert, or many other college events CU Boulder has to offer.

The Peer Mentors are here to provide assistance, motivation, and encouragement to you as you are in discovery mode.  Reach out to them when you need, as many of you may find a lifelong friend and guide for your years at CU Boulder.
