Smooth Transitions Mentor Program

Smooth Transitions logoWhy be part of the mentoring program?

"[The] Support, love, care, and advice from people whom I respect and will keep in my life forever."
   —C. J., Class of 2012, former mentee and mentor

The Smooth Transitions Mentor Program provides academic and social support to foster student growth and adjustment to Albion College and the surrounding community. Interested first-year under-represented students from different racial/ethnic backgrounds are matched with an upper-class student. Student mentors meet weekly with their mentees, conduct study sessions, and encourage students' involvement on campus.

Albion College is committed to the development of a diverse and pluralistic living and learning community. In direct support of this College-wide aim, the Office of Intercultural Affairs works in cooperation with the campus and greater community to heighten awareness of and create an appreciation for diversity. The office coordinates and promotes cultural and educational programs. The office actively assists students with their transition into and retention at the College.
