    About the Program

    The Student Success Mentor Program is part of the Center for Teaching and Learning. The program was launched in the Summer of 2014 to work with students in the First Year Seminar course currently available for Business, Criminal Justice, Engineering and Computer Science, Health Sciences, Liberal Arts Social Science and Humanities, Liberal Arts Math and Science, Natural Sciences, and Psychology majors. SSMs guide first year students in adjusting to college and getting to know the campus and resources. As a first year student, you will benefit from working with an SSM because:

    • They’re current students at LaGuardia or at a senior college and have a lot of experience to share with you
    • They’ve completed their first year in college successfully
    • They can offer useful tips on using college resources available to you
    • And more

    Find the SSMs on Facebook

    See what the Student Success Mentors are sharing on Facebook, too.
