Research has shown that one of the most important factors that contribute to the likelihood of college success is providing incoming students with a mentor. To that end, the Success Mentor Program is uniquely designed to help first-year students smoothly adjust to life at UC Merced. The aim of the program is to help new students successfully settle in shortly after arrival by offering them an opportunity to establish community and to be mentored by experienced and accompished upperclass students. Success mentors will provide critical guidance, friendship, and support for new students.
