The ELI’s Student Mentor Program is designed to provide first semester international students with a peer mentor (a Syracuse University student) who assists them in their transition to life in the U.S. The mentors make a lasting contribution to the lives of our new students as they become familiar with the challenges and rewards of student life on the campus of Syracuse University and the surrounding community.

The mentor program consists of:

  • A weekly group meeting with the mentor and 10-15 students.
  • Individual meetings with the mentor and each mentee.
  • Weekly group activities designed with the students’ interests in mind.
