The Student Advisement /First Year Connections Peer Mentors are here to make a positive impact on the Sheridan student experience. These Peer Mentors assist students at the Student Service Centre and around campus, and are involved in the First Year Connections Program.
First Year Connections
First Year Connections (FYC) pairs you with a Peer Mentor, a current senior student, who will answer any questions you may have, remind you of important dates, host events where you can connect with other students, and invite you to activities that will enhance your Sheridan experience.

NOW LET'S MEET YOUR PEERS!
Davis Campus Peers:
Charmaine - Computer Systems Technician-Software Engineering
As an International student, I chose Sheridan over other colleges because of its wonderful feedback and ever since then I was very excited about studying at Sheridan. Right from the day of Orientation I have had a wonderful experience with Sheridan. Apart from studying at Sheridan, there are many different opportunities as a student and this is one of the reasons why I chose to become a peer mentor. I remember being a mentee last year and benefited from the Peer Mentor program a lot. This is one of the reasons why I chose to become a Peer Mentor so that I could do a small part of helping others in the same manner that I was guided along. The positive vibes in and around Sheridan makes you go out of your way and contribute to its healthy and student friendly environment. I can now proudly say that my decision of choosing Sheridan in all aspects was correct and fruitful.
Kelly - Bachelor of Applied Health Sciences (Exercise Science and Health Promotion)
I was introduced to Peer Mentoring by a friend who worked in another department of Sheridan. I applied for the position in the hope that I would be able to assist new students with their transition to a new school and make sure that they have an enjoyable experience while there. It also gives me the opportunity to work with a great group of people who are as enthusiastic and encouraging to me as they are to the students we are helping.
Yentl - Community and Justice Services
I decided to be a peer mentor because I wanted to help the students who were coming into college have a great and rewarding experience and also be available to have someone to relate to on a personal and scholarly level.
Andrew - Bachelor of Applied Health Sciences (Exercise Science and Health Promotion)
I want to help students make a smooth transition into Sheridan and their program. I know how stressful school can be, therefore helping students to utilizing the tools to succeed in a competitive and fast paced environment is important. Additionally, giving back to the students means the Sheridan community as a whole is strengthened. Cheers.
Leon - Investigations Public & Private
I decided to become a peer mentor to share my great experience I had with the College to give back something worthwhile back to first year students.
Ian - Investigations Public & Private
I first heard of this peer mentoring position through volunteer work I was doing with the school. I applied for the position because I love helping people in new environments so they can make an easy, comfortable and successful transition to something new. I always want people to feel involved and connected in life so things can be more enjoyable and not have the feeling of being lost. I also look forward to improving my social and communication skills and most of all make new friends.
Daniela - Child and Youth Worker
I wanted to be a Peer Mentor so I could help out other Sheridan students, and show them how much this school really has to offer. Also, I wanted to do more than come to school just to attend class. I wanted to be involved in my community and be a part of the team that prioritizes in helping students.
Trafalgar Campus Peers:
Kristen - Art and Art History
This is my second program that I've taken at Sheridan and I wanted to give back to the school. I also love helping people and meeting new people so this was a great way to combine the two while giving back to Sheridan.

The Peer Mentoring program exists for one simple reason: to help students. Beins a student myself, it was great to have this service when I needed it, and becoming a Peer Mentor allows me the opportunity to do my part for the school.
Rebecca - Visual & Creative Arts
Entering college as a single mother as well as mature student made the journey seem overwhelming. Thankfully, Sheridan offers wonderful programs such as FYC to help new students adjust to college life. After completing my first year successfully and transfer into a second program, I wanted to be involved with helping new students in the same way Student Advisement helped me.
Christine - Business Administration-Human Resources Management Co-op
Anyone can study at Sheridan and leave with a piece of paper. I want to do more than that. I want to give back to the Sheridan community, and being able to help other students allows me to do this.
Naddya - Bachelor of Applied Arts-Animation
The previous Peer Mentors had been such a great example, assisting me whenever I was stuck. I wanted to be a part of the cycle of helping students.

I decided to be a Peer Mentor because I love to help people, whether it be answering questions or helping them adjust to new situations, it's a very satisfying job.
Rob - Business Administration-Human Resources
I became a Peer Mentor because I remember how it was in the first year of college. Feeling nervous about the people I'd meet, the course load, and just getting lost on campus. I wanted to help the first years not worry about that and be there for them when they need help.
