Mentorship Alliance for Student Success (MASS) Program
Welcome to the College of Science and Mathematics (CSM) Mentorship Alliance for Student Success (MASS) Program! College is a big transition for many first-year freshmen, and the rigor of being a STEM major can make it even more overwhelming. The program is made up of volunteer peer mentors, who play a vital role in providing first-year freshmen support with college navigation and knowledge of campus resources. In addition, peer mentors help the first-year freshmen connect, both academically and socially, to the university in order to successfully reach degree completion. We are hopeful that this support will have a long-lasting influence beyond the students' experience at Fresno State.
The Fresno State College of Science and Mathematics (CSM) Mentorship Alliance for Student Success (MASS) Program will serve as an integral part of the college designed to promote student success and STEM retention by providing first-year freshmen with exclusive peer support that will enhance their academic development.
