ALIVE Mentors

What Do Mentors Do?
In collaboration with other mentors and apprentices, ALIVE mentors plan and run programs for students living in the residence halls and occasionally for the wider campus community. These programs are intended to help students explore questions about values, beliefs, purpose and callings in life.

Most programs are spiritual in nature and are aimed at students of all faith backgrounds and points in spiritual development. Other programs are social in nature and are meant to build community within the hall and on campus.

Specific Job Requirements

  • Arrive on campus a week before the beginning of the fall semester to attend ALIVE training and orientation.
