Peer Mentoring at Larimer Campus

The Peer Mentors in the Academic Support Center are here to help welcome you to our FRCC community and ease your transition to college.

Peer Mentors are guides, academic coaches, leaders, and helpers for new and continuing FRCC students. They:

  • Provide encouragement and support through personal and academic challenges.
  • Help students set goals, manage their time, and stay organized.
  • Assist students with understanding college expectations, navigating technology like D2L, connecting with campus resources, and developing effective college learning skills.
  • Share their strategies for success with academic skills like reading college textbooks, taking notes and doing well on exams.

To schedule a meeting with a Peer Mentor, please contact the Academic Support Center at (970) 204-8112 or fill out the Peer Mentor Request Form.

Please Note: Peer Mentor sessions are available the week before the semester begins. We will do our best to accommodate mentor requests within 1-2 business days. You can choose to meet with a mentor once to get help with a specific task or weekly throughout the semester for ongoing support in navigating college.
