Academic Support

In-Office Support

First-Year Mentoring

First-year students meet weekly and in first-year group sessions with the Executive Director of Multicultural Engagement. During these meetings students discuss their academic progress, schedule, goals, time management and personal concerns. These open discussions provide support to students as they map their college years, choose majors, plan coursework, prepare for off-campus study and build lifelong relationships.

Upper-Class Mentoring

Sophomores, juniors and seniors have the opportunity to meet bi-weekly with the Director of the office to have one on one conversation about their academic and social tenure at Gettysburg College. These guided conversations are focused on helping students navigate academics, declaring a major, studying off-campus, career/internship opportunities and life beyond Gettysburg College as they matriculate.
