A First Year Experience Program in collaboration with the Center for Student Formation

Compass Mentoring Program

The Compass Mentoring Program is a new pilot program that provides supportive communities for incoming first-year AHANA students. Led by upperclassmen Mentors, the compass program will engage first-year students beginning on their orientation weekend and offer guidance and support throughout their first semester at Boston College. Two Compass Mentors will lead weekly small groups meeting with 8 first-year students. Compass participants will receive wisdom and insights about how to navigate their first semester, as well as be exposed to important campus resources.  Above all, these first-year students will form friendships and gain a strong sense of community.


Applications are now closed. 

Application Deadline: Tuesday, March 21st at 11:59pm

As a Compass Mentor you'll be able to support AHANA students as they transition from high school to Boston College. You'll co-facilitate a small group of students and share your unique BC experience.
