Mentors are a resource and support to first-year students

As a teacher and adviser, I love what I do––and can only hope that this love speaks for itself.-Andrea Sununu Professor of English

First-Year Mentors


The students that comprise the mentor program have diverse fields of study, backgrounds, interests and are involved in many different leadership activities across campus. One thing they have in common is a commitment to helping each and every first-year student make a successful transition to DePauw. They recognize that this transition can challenging at times, and they want to play a part in connecting the newest members of our community to resources that can be supportive during that transition process.

New Student Orientation


As you transition to DePauw, you will get a chance to connect with your first-year mentor group. We will support you throughout orientation and your first-year on campus.
