Program Overview

THRIVE Peer-to-Peer Success Program matches first-year students with an upper class Peer Guide.  Throughout their entire first year, Peer Guides are there to support students as they transition to college. Participants will attend campus-wide activities and become acclimated to campus socially and personally. In addition, THRIVE participants will grow together as a community through bi-weekly meetings to enhance self-efficacy, self-regulation, and to promote career development and financial literacy.
