Welcome to the Sam Fox Peer Mentoring Program!

The mission of the program is to foster professional and personal relationships among undergraduate students in the College of Art and the College of Architecture. Through both one-on-one relationships and group events, we strive to promote student health and well-being, studio culture, and professional and academic development. 

We provide opportunities for mentors and mentees to engage with each other as well as explore what the Sam Fox community has to offer. Activities range from events organized by the Peer Mentoring Program to those held by other organizations in the Sam Fox School.

Several examples include:

  • Group bonding activities and fun challenges
  • Studio pop-ins and coursework advising
  • Mentor-Mentee(s) program-funded lunch or coffee
  • Fox Friday workshops
  • Coffee talks with professors
  • Public Lecture Series

With activities such as those listed above, we hope to be able to provide an immersive experience for our incoming freshman class and transfer students. We look forward to welcoming you into the Sam Fox community!

For further information about the mission of the program, the roles and responsibilities of mentors, and the officers of the executive board, please see the Sam Fox Peer Mentoring Program Constitution
