Peer mentors are an integral part of the ACT 101 program. Meeting regularly with ACT 101 members in small groups, and also one-on-one, peer mentors discuss class progress and guide students through their first few semesters here at Rosemont College. Familiar with the campus and the SASC staff, peer mentoring is a strong and positive component of the entire ACT 101 program.
