The LEAP Peer Mentor Program

LEAP Mentors are trained to assist you in your transition to LC and will help get you connected to our campus community and resources!

Making the transition to Lewis & Clark College, regardless of academic ability, comes with many new challenges, growth, and changes that one may not have ever expected. It is important to remember that you are not alone in this transition! Our LEAP Mentors are upperclass students who know too well some of the issues incoming new students face when transitioning to Lewis & Clark College. These mentors are eager to pass along some advice and knowledge as well as help you get connected to the Lewis & Clark community!

LEAP Mentors are exceptional student leaders who can be a resource for you regarding information about academics, study and time management skills, student organizations, campus life, and other co-curricular activities. As a part of GE and the LEAP program, you can expect regular, weekly contact with your LEAP mentor and access to programs, events, and off-campus socials only available to mentors and mentees!
