Giving Undergraduates Ideas to Directly Encourage Success



The CoSM GUIDES peer mentoring program seeks to encourage the success of CoSM students by building relationships and helping students to connect to resources, develop study and life skills, and to successfully navigate college in a positive, supportive way.  The peer mentors hold activities each week that are designed to help student be successful and help them learn about opportunities available to them at Valdosta State University.  


Students in majors in the College of Science and Mathematics are encouraged to attend weekly activities (see below).  During the Spring 2024 semester, most activities will be held in Nevins Hall (room 1065), which is the *NEW* STEM Study Room that provides a student-centered space to study, work on projects, or take a break between classes. Each of the activities below is designed to not only help students strengthen skills, but also have fun and meet other students.
