Roles in the Community
First Year Students: Around 100 incoming students are accepted into the program through a rigorous application process. These students have a STEM interest and are paired with a peer mentor prior to arriving on campus.
Peer Mentors: About 40 second-year students apply to return to the program as a peer mentor. Each peer mentor is assigned to 3-4 first year students.
Program Board: The Board is made up of 6-7 peer mentors that apply to plan the events for the year. The Board hosts 6 events per semester for the entire community to attend.
Resident Advisors: The program has 5 Resident Advisors (RAs) that are third and fourth-year students and the majority of the current RAs were former WISE RP memebers.
Ice Skating at Yost
The Program Board hosted an ice-skating night at Yost Ice Arena on campus, providing free skates and ice rental for first-year students and peer mentors. Ice-skating at Yost is one of the most look forward to events of the winter throughout campus.
First year students, peer mentors, and RAs gathered for a night of karoke, dancing, and showcasing other talents one night while indulging in sweet treats. This is one of the events our Program Board hosted for the community.
Growing Your Future
The community gathered to create vision boards for the semester and new year while planting succulents and decorating pots. Let's not forget about the Michigan baskeball game that was being aired as well. Go Blue!
