CSUN Mentor Connect

Mentor Connect

CSUN Mentor Connect is a virtual large-scale peer mentoring program that connects new CSUN students with experienced Matadors who share similar interests, background, and even career aspirations. Having a mentor enhances your campus experience by giving you useful insights and valuable support. In turn, mentors gain the opportunity to get involved on campus, gain volunteer experience, and make a true difference.
