Human development and family science offers peer mentor program

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

The human development and family science (HDFS) undergraduate program, located within the School of Family Studies and Human Services in the College of Human Ecology, has initiated a peer mentoring program for the 2017-18 academic year. HDFS seniors Jaci Kolm (Pratt, KS), Lara Hoss (Salina, KS), Mallory Wilhite (Shawnee, KS) and Kaylee Seyferth (Garden City, KS) will assist declared and prospective students with questions about the HDFS major and minor. Topics may include tips on enrollment and scheduling classes, navigating their degree requirements, explaining KSIS and DARS, questions about student life, and the variety of campus resources. Peer mentors will offer their unique perspective to the students with whom they meet.


The HDFS peer mentors represent the diverse academic paths within the major. Their career interests range from Occupational Therapy and Couple & Family Therapy to working in non-profits and higher education. Peer Mentors are available every day of the week. Students may drop in to Justin 305, but are encouraged to make appointments or email them with specific questions.
