New UBC SLAIS Peer Mentorship Program
From the online flyer:
"The Peer Mentorship program is designed to help MLIS incoming students make a smooth transition to the School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies (SLAIS), the University of British Columbia, and the city of Vancouver. Incoming students who wish to participate in the program will be paired with a continuing student based on the availability of volunteers. The peer mentorship program offers a unique opportunity for incoming students to learn more about student life at SLAIS and for all participants to make a valuable social contact in both their personal and professional lives."
This program is run by the BCLA/CLA Student Chapter, and was started for the incoming class of Fall 2005.
Update 09/20/05: I signed up, and have exchanged a few emails with my new mentee! It's very exciting to meet new enthusiastic professionals... I'm really looking forward to this!
