Transitions & Connections

Summer Peer Mentor Program for New Students

Looking to meet other incoming and current Cornellians before coming to campus?

Transitions & Connections is a summer peer-mentor program that pairs small groups of new students with an upperclassman to make connections and build community, and to ask questions about what it’s really like to live and learn at Cornell before classes start.

Hear about your mentor’s experiences, learn about campus resources, ask all the questions about transitioning to Cornell you didn’t know you had, and get to know other incoming students.

The program will consist of three to four 50-minute virtual meetings throughout the month of July. 

Sign up by June 23, 2021 to be matched with a group of incoming students and an upperclassman mentor.
