How does Mentoring Work?


Belong@FHS starts at Orientation. At this event:

  • First year undergraduate students will be connected with senior student mentors
  • Belong@FHS teams will participate in activities with commencing students
  • Students will share a free lunch, and
  • New undergraduate students will learn about their Health Sciences degrees.

Belong@FHS will run throughout Semester 1. We use a team mentoring approach where mentoring teams will consist of two mentors and six to eight first year students.

The mentoring program itself changes from year to year based on feedback from our mentors and mentees. Every year, there is a combination of informal mentoring, workshops and social events with lots of food!

Please refer to the 2019 Belong@FHS Cumberland program for more information.
