Academic Peer Mentors

Academic Peer Mentors are current students who meet one-on-one with first-year students living in the residence halls to help support their academic transition to UC Davis.

Academic Peer Mentors are trained to:

  • Talk about tips and tricks on how to use OASIS, MyDegree, Schedule Builder, Canvas
  • Listen to academic concerns
  • Refer to the most appropriate campus resources
  • Offer suggestions and new strategies for test taking and studying
  • Use their experience to help guide new students
  • Prepare students for pass times and academic advising appointments
  • Help new students explore majors and change majors
  • Remind students that academics can be difficult at UC Davis and there are people here who want to support them!

And much more!
