Global Peer Mentor Program

The Global Peer Mentor Program connects first-year international students with an experienced current ASU student as your Global Peer Mentor. Your mentor will meet with you regularly and answer any questions you have throughout your first semester at ASU to help guide you every step of the way. They will also show you everything the campus offers by taking you to student events and connecting you to various resources to help you transition into the ASU campus. Through this program, you will also have the opportunity to meet other first-year international students through group activities and events designed to help you get connected.

You need to enroll in Fall 2021 courses full-time to be assigned with a Global Peer Mentor. If you have any questions, you can contact us at
