What is La Conexion

La Conexion (The Connection) is a peer mentor program for first-year Latin/a/o/x students.

Why Join La Conexion?

How Does La Conexion Work?

First-year students will be paired with one peer mentor. Students will virtually connect with their mentor twice a month to discuss academics, stress management, identity exploration, balancing family expectations, and other important topics. There will also be one-hour, weekly virtual group sessions where students can meet other first-year students. Our goal is to establish long-lasting relationships.
