- Why attend?
- Student Experience
As a Freshman Edge student, you will meet continuing UCI students right away. These Freshman Edge mentors eagerly wait to welcome you to UCI. In addition to creating a meaningful and supportive program environment, they will help you transition to the UCI campus and college life, and introduce you to campus resources and the UCI social scene. Our mentor team consists of undergraduate students who share a passion for serving incoming first-year students, many of which participated in one of our Freshman Edge pathways. These mentors partake in a formal Leadership Development Program beginning in winter quarter as a hands-on leadership development experience. By becoming a Freshman Edge mentor, students give feedback on the past year’s program, develop program events, and work with the students during the upcoming Freshman Edge Program. Additionally, students learn leadership, commitment, responsibility, communication, and decision-making skills from hands-on planning and execution of events.
Mentors are currently being recruited for summer 2019!
