International Student Mentor/Mentee Program
The goal of the Mentor/Mentee Program is to give personal assistance to newly-admitted international students (mentees) who are still abroad. The program is also open to newly-admitted international students who are planning to attend UA. The mentors are international students who have been studying at UA for at least two semesters. Students apply for the program online and mentees are then paired with their mentors. Mentors will be available to the mentees to answer any questions the mentees may have about The University of Akron and life in the United States. The participants may discuss study, housing, transportation, and other issues that are related to the new international student's adaptation and success at UA and the United States.
