What is an FYI Mentor?
An FYI Mentor is an upperclassman who "knows the ropes" and can advise entering freshmen during their first semester at Queens College. These Mentors ensure that the freshmen are aware of and understand the requirements and resources of the College.
FYI Mentors are themselves a resource for freshmen. Two mentors are assigned to every English 110 class and are available in person and through emails to pass along key information that freshman need to know as they adjust to the college.
How can I become an FYI Mentor?
The FYI office invites students who have been enrolled for a semester or more at Queens College to apply for a position as an FYI Mentor for our program.
The FYI program will begin the process of accepting and reviewing mentor applications from late March into the middle of April.
If your application is satisfactory, you may be called in to do a short in person interview with a mentor supervisor or one of our faculty members. Decisions are sent out via email in mid-late April.
