Students Together Are Reaching Success (STARS) is a peer to peer mentoring programming for first time DePaul Students. Our Mentors are passionate about helping students adjust to DePaul by having outings, showing students how to use resources side by side and being a friendly face on campus. Mentors will check-in on mentees once a week to ensure their success.
Everyone! Students who are targeted via email and phone calls are first generation college students, students of color or pell-eligible. You may have received an email or phone call from your mentor over the summer. Call or email them back to learn more about how to be an active mentee.
“One should become a mentee to gain those hidden gems of DePaul and get insightful advice from mentors who were once in their shoes.” –Alexis Johnson (Psychology, 3rd Year)
“I recommend that students become mentees because it helps them get acquainted with the resources available at DePaul. Going to an institution with 20,000+ students in Chicago can be overwhelming. STARS Peer Mentors can help them combat any challenges that they may have and help them thrive during their time as a student.” –Samantha Mallett (Business Marketing, Rising Senior)
