Gateway Mentor Profiles

A Gateway Mentor is a current Brandeis student who has successfully completed the Gateway Scholars Program and works as a peer advisor to new Gateway Scholars. Mentors support new Gateway Scholars' acclimation to the Brandeis community and American culture as international students. Mentors help students reflect on the skills they are developing, provide perspective on the challenges they may face, and give feedback. Mentors are interested in and willing to help others and are expected to serve as role models within the Gateway Scholar community. Mentors are also highly accomplished students with many exemplary achievements on- and off-campus. Their success demonstrates that the Gateway Scholars Program helps students discover and achieve their high aspirations.
