CEED Peer Mentoring

One of the great things about being a new Hokie in engineering is the amount of support you can receive from your upper-class peers who genuinely want to do whatever they can to help you have the best first semester possible.  


Through the CEED Peer Mentoring Program, you will be assigned to a small group of about 10 freshmen and one upper-class mentor. You will get together and talk about typical first-year issues – finding campus resources, connecting with faculty, exploring undergraduate research, and asking any questions you have about getting connected on campus. Through our mentor groups and large social events, you will meet study partners and make lasting friendships. This is a great way to start your first semester as a Hokie! 


You may select which mentoring group you would like to join:

  • AHORA (Academic Hispanic OutReach Alliance)

  • BEST (Black Engineering Support Teams)

  • GUEST (General Undergraduate Engineering Support Teams)

  • WEST (Women in Engineering Support Teams)



The weekend before classes begin, you will be invited to attend a welcome event with your mentor. This will be a great chance to meet the mentors and other mentees in the program and hit the ground running, making connections on campus. Your small group will determine when you would like to meet based on your schedules for the first 10 weeks of the fall semester. Some meetings will be on campus while others will be off campus. The off-campus meetings will be a great chance for your mentor to help you get to know the community around campus and take you to a meal compliments of CEED!


At the heart of all this activity and planning are engineering students who genuinely care about helping you have an excellent experience as a new Hokie.
