Area students chosen to be peer mentors at UW-Whitewater
Placeholder Image
WHITEWATER - Two area students have been trained and certified to be University of Wisconsin-Whitewater peer mentors. They are Shelby Coffey, a senior from Monroe, majoring in early childhood education, and Kristen Klein, a sophomore from Brodhead, majoring in human resource management.

Each of the 93 UW-Whitewater peer mentors is assigned a group of new students to help them get comfortable with campus, participate in activities and build relationships. Mentors ease the transition for new students throughout the first semester by guiding them through Club U-Dub-Dub, facilitating new student seminar courses and setting them up for social and academic success. Each peer mentor has to submit an application, go through a five-week training program and make it through the interview process before being selected.
