Now that the first couple weeks of classes are over with, many students begin to feel a little overwhelmed. They’re not too sure how they are going to handle all these readings, assignments, and exams they are seeing on their course syllabus. I’m here to tell you that you can do it! You’ve been accepted to Brock University for that exact reason. You were the student selected over thousands of others that applied. You’ve already won!

Here at Brock we try to do everything possible to help you make the high-school to university transfer run as smoothly as possible. Brock offers a program known as Mentorship Plus that pairs first year students with an upper year student in the same program. During your first three years at Brock, students have the opportunity to partner with a senior mentor, participate in leadership and skills training, and even act as a mentor themselves. These mentors will help you get a feel for the campus, your program, and present you with opportunities you can get involved in within the Brock community. It’s an amazing opportunity for students to meet and work with peers that have been in their shoes and know exactly what they are going through.

Mentorship Plus is all about supporting students though their major transition periods. After your first year Mentorship Plus helps with your journey from Brock to your chosen career path. Students often find themselves asking themselves “What am I going to do with my degree?” When you enter third and fourth year Mentorship Plus can help you answer those questions.

Mentorship Plus is available to students in all areas of study. They provide mentors for first year students, senior students, varsity athletes, co-op and international students.

About Vanessa

Hello Future Baby Badgers! My name is Vanessa and I am currently in my fourth year here at Brock University. Brock has been helping me pursue my love of children through their Concurrent Education program, where I am majoring in Physical Education and minoring in General Science. BrockU has become my home away from home with its close-knit community. Let me give you a little more information about myself. In my four years here at Brock I have been able to create a great experience for myself by participating in intramural sports, research studies, SNAP (Special Needs Activity Program), and many other events that happen in and around our beautiful campus. This year I will be working closely with one of my professors as an intern for one of her courses. I can’t wait to blog about all my experiences! Feel free to browse my blog and reply with any comments or questions.
