Peer Mentoring Program

Students at Clarkson College can smoothly transition into college life by participating in the Peer Mentoring Program. This program is offered to new, incoming students for their first-year experience.

As a participant of the program, we pair you with a peer mentor selected from the list on your application form. Peer mentors can help familiarize students with the College, the Omaha area, as well as answer any questions or address concerns while taking classes here. Whether you are an on-campus student or a distance student, a peer mentor can connect with you via in-person, Zoom, email or phone. In-person meetings must respect social distancing guidelines during a time of pandemic.

A Typical Session

Your one-on-one peer mentoring sessions are tailored to your individual needs. The subject matter discussed is only as casual or in-depth as you prefer it to be. The length and frequency of sessions are also decided upon between you and your peer mentor.

How to Participate

Participation in the program is voluntary, and can begin at any time during your first year. To sign up, fill out this form. For more general information contact Kitty Cappellano at 402.552.2694 or
