RC MAP (Mentorship Among Peers)

The RC MAP (Mentorship Among Peers) Program aims to strengthen the Residential College community by encouraging first-year and upper-level students to interact and exchange insights starting in the summer before their freshman year. With MAP, new students come to campus with a built-in support system! Mentors and mentees might live in East Quad together, see each other in classes, or join student organizations around campus! 


RC MAP provides incoming RC freshmen with personalized guidance and connects them to social and academic resources on campus. It also provides returning RC students with leadership and reflection opportunities. RC mentors and mentees meet regularly for coffee, concerts, tutoring, football games, etc. and they participate in monthly bonding events ranging from board game nights to ice skating excursions.  Above all, the RC MAP Program strives to guide RC students toward personal and professional success. Incoming students will receive information about MAP after they are admitted and accept their spot in the RC.


RC MAP Provides upperclassmen with the opportunity to take a strong leadership role in their community, and mentors receive direct mentoring from the RC Student Affairs Coordinator on event planning, working in higher education, and more.
