Inspired by new opportunities, the Marian University’s First-Year Studies program is committed to the success of the first-year students, guiding them in their transition to college and educational goal achievement. At Marian University, each first-year student is assigned a Student Mentor who helps him or her become acclimated to Marian. The Student Mentor serves as a role-model, assisting students with course work in the First-Year Seminar, planning programs for educational and social purposes, and being of assistance for each student’s success.
