First Year Friendzee Mentoring Program

SFA Weeks of Welcome's First Year Friendzee mentor program supports new student transition from high school and integrates them into life at SFA. The program recruits successful students who volunteer to be a WoW mentor and participate in trainings and programs geared toward effective mentorship for incoming students.

Incoming first year students are encouraged to participate in programs, sign up to be paired with a mentor, and to later serve as a mentor to new Lumberjacks the following year. First Year Friendzee is an event that takes place during SFA Weeks of Welcome to serve as the initial connection for new and current students. Active participation in mentoring programs ensures students form a connection with at least one student they can use as a resource during their time at SFA.

Transfer Student Network

SFA's Transfer Student Network program supports transfer student transition from their previous institutions and integrates them into life at SFA. The program recruits successful transfer students who volunteer to be a mentor and participate in trainings and programs geared toward effective mentorship for incoming transfer students.

Incoming transfer students are encouraged to participate in programs, sign up to be paired with a mentor, and to later serve as a mentor to new transfer students the following year. A Meet and Greet occurs during SFA Weeks of Welcome to serve as the initial connection for new and current transfer students. Active participation in the Transfer Student Network ensures students form a connection with at least one student they can use as a resource during their time at SFA.
