ACADEMIC FELLOWS


Each residential college has an Academic Fellows or Mentors Society, an honorary service organization dedicated to academic life in the college. Fellows or Mentors are upperclassmen who have:

  1. Proven academic achievement
  2. College citizenship
  3. Interest in the academic life of their College
  4. Willingness to help other students


As part of their charge, Fellows and Mentors Societies provide academic assistance on a regular basis through advertised review sessions, "office hours" or requested individual meetings. Two major advantages of consulting a Fellow or Mentor are:

  1. Convenience and proximity of source
  2. The familiarity of the Fellow or Mentor with the specific course. Students should consult the list of Academic Fellows and Mentors at their respective colleges.
