Connections Program

Connections Program

CONNECTIONS PROGRAM - a way to "Connect" with someone who can help guide you through your first days, weeks and semester in Syracuse!!!

The Connections Program is a mentoring program offered by the Slutzker Center for International Services for all new first year and transfer students. It will connect you with an experienced student for advice about settling into Syracuse, living with a roommate, opening a bank account, meeting new friends, getting along with your teachers, and how to handle your academic work!  You will also be able to attend social functions with other new students and your mentor.

This year's Connections Program mentors are listed below.  Students are invited and encouraged to contact them before arriving at Syracuse University.

This is a program especially designed to help new students succeed, so take advantage of it!

If you are an SU student who is interested in becoming a mentor, click the application on the left-side of this webpage and get involved or write to us at lescis@syr.edu if you have questions!!
