Marauder Mentor Program

The University College Marauder Mentor Program seeks to provide opportunities for incoming students to connect with the Central State University community through the guidance of a peer and faculty/staff mentor. Through matching incoming students with mentors, the hope is that new students will have a reference point for understanding the complexities of college life and help to discover their potential. Research shows those students who are able to develop a bond with the people and the institution they are more likely to be retained. The goal of this program is to carry out the mission of the University College, to provide a seamless transition and to create a support system for new first-time freshmen. It is the belief that this mentoring program will help to institute a system of accountability that will help to ensure that new students will not fall through the cracks.
