Peer mentors are an integral part of the ACT 101 program. They are individuals from the student body who meet regularly with the ACT 101 members in small groups and also one-on-one to discuss class progress and also to guide them through their first few semesters here at Rosemont College to help them become oriented to the Rosemont community. They are students who are very familiar with the campus and the staff members who work in the Student Academic Success Center as well as other departments on campus. Peer mentoring is a strong and positive component of the entire ACT 101 program.
The Student Academic Success Center is located on the first floor of the McShain/Brown Science Building, Room 115.
