Peer Mentors

All of our Mentors are alumni of ELASP and are excited to support your transition.

Our mentors organize numerous small group activities designed to help new students get connected, make friends, and learn the ins and outs of Bauer.

Your peer mentor is here to help you:

  • Meet new people
  • Get you connected to campus activities, clubs and organizations
  • Help you to navigate the UH campus
  • Learn strategies for being successful in your classes (ex. how to interact with your professors, organize study groups, etc.)
  • Learn about and use academic and personal support resources at the university; such as the Writing Center, Learning Support Services, and the Health Center

I love the people running it and I love how interactive and fun it can be in all the social events. It was a great experience and with great people to accompany one in. I am super excited to continue to be a part of it but as a mentor because it helped me a lot with making new friends as well as helping me with my career with giving me help and something to put on my resume. It is an amazing experience that one can only experience once and this is why I LOVE ELASP, such an amazing program and dear to me.

I love the involvement and opportunities ELASP gives us as transfer students. The events and workshops helped me become better prepared for our career fairs at Bauer. The connections I made by the end of the semester with the other students in this program are unforgettable and helped me with my first semester here at UH.

ELASP provided me with knowledge in areas I wasn't familiar with, and its welcoming environment gave me the confidence to ask questions. The experience allowed me to make new friends and learn not only about the services offered by Bauer and UH but also how I can succeed in my class.

I love ELASP because it allowed me to have an easier transition into a university where I was starting from scratch. Before joining I was worried that I would lack good studying habits, be behind other students in coursework, and have a hard time meeting people with similar interests as me, but thankfully this was not the case! ELASP provided me with all the tools I needed to be successful in Bauer and at the University of Houston which pushed me to get more involved with different events and organizations we have on campus.
