Faculty Mentors

Faculty mentors who teach the First-Year Writing Seminar also serve as advisors for first-year students until they are ready to declare a major. Mentors reserve time to meet with students each week to discuss issues such as:

  • Succeeding academically
  • Developing education goals
  • Investigating majors
  • Planning for careers
  • Graduate school
  • Internships
  • Study abroad
  • Meeting graduation requirements

Faculty mentors also refer students to the many services available at Whittier College.
