First-year students have the opportunity to participate in the Clarkson College mentoring program. This program was designed to provide students with individual­ized assistance for the transition into the College. Mentors fulfill a number of roles, such as knowledgeable sound boards, coaches, supporters, career-building resources, relationship drivers, teachers and confidants. Each first-year student is paired with a faculty or staff member who will serve as a mentor while a student is at Clarkson College. There is no cost for this program, and every incoming student is invited to participate on a voluntary basis. For more information, visit the mentoring website or email
