Bio Buddies Mentor

Did you ever wonder how your first year experience at SFU might have been if you had or did not have an experienced SFU student to talk to? Would you be interested in helping first year biology students adapt to SFU's environment?

The role of mentors is to ease this transition by sharing your experience and helping first year students navigate through their first term at SFU. The commitment is only for the Summer term (after the new students have been admitted to SFU) and for Fall term. You are required to arrange a meeting with a mentee at least twice, and training will be provided.
