— Alyssa Garcia of Goshen, N.Y., has been named a peer mentor for the fall 2017 semester at Alvernia University in Reading, Pa.

Garcia, a graduate of Goshen Central High School, is majoring in Occupational Therapy at Alvernia.

Every first-year seminar class at Alvernia University is assigned a peer mentor. These mentors are high-achieving, upper-division students who act as guides and additional resources for first-year students as they adjust to college life and academic expectations.

Each mentor establishes his or her unique relationship with students in his or her section, but all students can expect peer mentors to model successful time management techniques, help them learn how to find and use information about student support services, and guide them toward informed decision making.
