What resources will be available to me after my classes begin in the fall?
In addition to mentoring from your professors in the Summer Scholars Program, Swarthmore provides an array of resources, including tutoring and academic advising, to help all students succeed. We are dedicated to your success! After the program, join our Alumni Facebook page to stay in touch with other cohorts and learn about campus events. In addition, many Swarthmore students participate in peer mentoring programs. Here are some tips to best utilize peer mentoring workshops:
- Don't wait until the night before a big test or project to ask for help, try going to weekly sessions at the beginning of the semester with classmates to complete homework, review material, or ask questions.
- To make the most of your time, try homework problems on your own first and identify where you get stuck or need an explanation to ask your peer mentor.
- Bring your notes and textbook as helpful references.
- Peer mentors are here to help you succeed, not complete your coursework for you. They will not do problems or simply give you the answers.
Students are committed to helping each other do well; below are some examples.
