Last semester saw the very first iteration of the Peer Mentoring Programme, with over 120 new students (mentees) partnering up with 60 current students (mentors). The goal was to comfortably ease new students into life at MBS by providing hands-on opportunities to build a network of friends and familiar faces. For the duration of the programme, mentors acted as a point of contact for their mentees, whether they needed a bit of basic guidance or even a quick chat over multiple cups of coffee. For mentors, this proved to be a fantastic opportunity to help ease someone whose shoes they were in once!
We are absolutely delighted to see that many of the pairs have kept in contact long after the end of the programme. The programme turned out to be a huge success, spanning six weeks, multiple group events, coffee catch-ups and countless memorable moments. As a result, MBSSA is very excited to bring back the Peer Mentoring Programme for a second run in Semester 2. New and improved, better than ever before!
