2018-19 Academic Year
Katelyn is pursing a double major in Communication and Marketing with a minor in Leadership.
Through the College of Arts & Sciences, she will be helping recruit students as well
as meeting with students who are on probation.
"I am excited about being a peer mentor because I will have the opportunity to share why I love the University of North Dakota with potential students. I will also have the opportunity to work with undeclared students; I switched my major and therefore understand how stressful it can be when trying to decide a major."
Asha is a Biology/Pre-Medicine major and will be working with our first generation
students and students in the Go Global Academy.
"Greetings, my name is Asha. I'm a recent transfer student from Rochester Community & Technical College. As a first generations transfer students, I look forward to working with up-and-coming mentees through the Arts & Sciences mentorship program. College can be overwhelming, however--on the flip side--it can also be the best four (or so) years of your life filled with friends, new experiences, and dear memories. As a peer mentor, I'm here to guide you along your journey."
"I am excited about being a peer mentor because it is something I wish I had my freshman year and I feel like it is beneficial to receive guidance from a fellow peer. Over the past two years, I have achieved a variety of experiences that many people could relate to or learn from. I am excited to get to know more students on campus and provide them with the resources they need to assist them with their journey at UND. Success is one common goal that we all have, and I am looking forward to helping others acquire that."
Gabby is a sophomore Music Education and Honors double major. She will be working
with undecided students through the peer mentoring program.
"I am looking forward to bringing my unique perspective as a Music Education major into the mentoring program. I am going into teaching because I love helping others find their passions and act upon them. I hope to help my fellow UND students discover their passions and guide them to the resources to make those passions into a career!"
Brenda is a Psychology major and will be working with undecided and first generation students.
"I am excited about being a peer mentor since I get to help others learn what they are passionate about and to keep moving forward with their passions. Not only will I be helping students, but students will help me in communication, leadership skills and to be a good role model for others."
Miranda is a Psychology/Pre-Optometry major and will be working with students on probation
as well as undecided students. She will also help with recruitment activities for
the College of Arts & Sciences.
"I am excited to be a peer mentor because I know that college can be difficult to navigate at times and I think I can be an ally for a student who needs one. Mentoring will give me the opportunity to further my skills in leadership and communication. I hope that I can help others reach their goals and find success. I look forward to sharing advice through lessons I have learned during my time at UND!"
Kortney is a Biology and Nursing major. She will be working with undecided and first
generation students as well as students on probation.
"I am enthusiastic to work with students as their peer mentor primarily because it is important for students to have the resources so that they can seek information and/or get helpful answers to their questions. Every day, I lean a new insight about UND that I feel would be beneficial to share but I'm looking forward to gaining new insights from other students as a peer mentor."
Taytum is a Psychology, Honor, and Interdisciplinary Health Studies triple major in
the UND Pre-Medicine program. She started as a Biology major but soon found a passion
in multiple areas of discipline which led her to involvement with the Honors program.
She has studied abroad in Vienna, Austria. Taytum will be working with students in
the Go Global Academy and those who are undecided.
"I am ecstatic about being a peer mentor this academic year and aiding my peers to reach success at UND. I have enjoyed by experiences here at UND, ranging from changing majors after discovering new passions, finding volunteer experiences on and off campus, and studying abroad last summer. I am excited to use these experiences to help other students find their passion, whether that be a major or extracurricular experience. Most importantly, I will help peers turn passion into success."
