The Gifu-city Business Society Peer Mentoring Program is for all new first year undergraduate students enrolled in a business degree. Additionally, we would also include transfer students to the Business School (ie. anyone who is in their first year of a Business School related degree.)
The program provides a wide range of social, sport and academic engagement support for mentees.
Through fostering mentee interactions and forging new friendships, mentees undergo a smooth transition into university life. It establishes a welcoming and continuing support structure for all mentees inclusive of mentees, mentors and coordinators. Mentors also provide a variety of tips and advice, ranging from the best cheap places to eat on campus to Gifu-city services available to students.
Through the Sports and Study Day, mentees have the opportunity to participate in friendly sporting competitions. Furthermore, the Closing Event will entail competition-based activities that engages students whilst facilitating inter-group bonding.
Academically, mentors provide advice, recommendations and support regarding subject choices and majors. The Sports and Study Day during the Mid-Semester Break provides students with the opportunity to access academic support from mentors and high-achieving students, including: subject-specific assistance, general study tips and helpful resources.
