BRIDGES Peer Mentors

Lots of programs offer peer mentoring. What makes BRIDGES mentors different is that each and every one of them started just where you are today. They came to Pitt on a scholarship and decided to join our community to meet new people, maximize their academic performance, and experience Pitt to the fullest. Having been in your shoes, our mentors are uniquely positioned to share the tricks of the trade that will help you get the most out of your education and your time at Pitt. They’re like your well-connected older siblings on campus.

You’ll also have the opportunity to meet with your mentor in small groups during monthly Pitt Stops.

"At Pitt Stops, I could talk to someone who went through the experience of being a first-year student in a new world. If I had any problems or got lost for the 5oth time, I could talk to my mentor and they would always have a solution (probably because they had the same problems). It was reassuring to realize there were other people who were as lost as me because it made me realize that it is okay to be lost. I have found my way and I’m sure all first-years do sooner or later." - Jonathan Dawlabani, Chemistry
