The New Student Mentoring Network is designed to pair incoming first-year and transfer students with a mentor for their first quarter at UCLA. Students sign up for a New Student Mentor during their New Student Session and will be matched with a mentor during True Bruin Welcome Week, right before Fall Quarter begins. The goals of the mentoring network are to help:

  • Provide students with a personal contact to help them navigate the quarter and prepare for their first year at UCLA
  • Provide academic counseling relative to majors, minors, studying abroad and course planning
  • Explore co-curricular programs and involvement to personalize the UCLA experience
  • Allow students to meet each other and develop new relationships
  • Provide peer counselors who can share their own experiences as a source of support and information

If you would like to participate in the New Student Mentoring Network for Fall Quarter, please fill out the New Student Mentoring Network Request Form.  In September we will send out a confirmation email and ask for a little more information so we can match you with your mentor.
