CEAT Peer Mentor Program
Who We Are
The purpose of the CEAT Peer Mentor Program is to connect with students in the College of Engineering, Architecture, and Technology in order to facilitate a positive transition for students to Oklahoma State University. This program is meant to help students feel more connected and informed as they transition into their college education. Sophomore, Junior and Senior level students are all eligible to be paired with Freshmen students. Together, the pairs set goals and discuss the challenges that come with adapting to college life. Mentors can help answer questions and give helpful tips in hopes of increasing retention rates in CEAT.
