Century Scholars Mentors

The 2018-2019 Century Scholars Mentor Application opens on December 18, 2017.

Century Scholars Mentors are critical to the success of the Century Scholars Program, as they connect with incoming freshmen on a personal level and positively impact their first year at Texas A&M University. Mentors are trained to forge new relationships, impact the lives of new freshmen students, and help immerse them into the environment at Texas A&M. Mentors work with students in large and small groups, academic settings, and social settings throughout the school year. Century Scholars Mentors will be assigned to each section of the freshman seminar course. The Mentors act as a resource for Century Scholars freshmen in their first year at Texas A&M.
