  • Cultivate a sense of belonging and connectedness among the freshmen;
  • Promote freshmen’s enthusiasm for active campus involvement; and
  • Nurture freshmen a mindset for whole person development and life-long learning.

Peer Mentor Arrangement

To facilitate freshmen’s transition to the university, peer mentors, who are senior students from different faculties and schools, will be assigned to freshmen of the same course of study. With the support and guidance from peer mentors, freshmen will be able to expand their social network in the university and experience a delightful campus life.
