Hi to all our first years, mentors and mentor leaders

If you found student connect helpful when coming to NUIG last September why not give back by volunteering to be a mentor this year.  You can apply at:  To be a mentor you need to attend a short training course.  You have the choice of attending on Wednesday 22nd March or Tuesday 28th March.

Student Connect has been truly invigorated over the last 3 years.  Why?  Because it is the only truly student led programme in the University.  Its also the biggest club on campus so why not volunteer!  Mentor Leaders and mentors arrange social events throughout the year for 1st years, inform 1st years of whats happening on campus and make changes to the programme to truly meet the needs of first year students.

I want to sincerely thank Lauren Galvin and Eileen Shannon who were responsible for injecting new life into this programme.  They couldn't have done this without the mentor leaders and mentors.  You were all fabulous and amazing.  We owe it to them to keep this great work and fun going so why not, go on volunteer - and that's not all you also get the NUI Galway's ALIVE cert for being part of this programme.

Who wouldn't want to be part of this!

Before I finish I want to wish all first years best of luck in their exams (I know its too early to mention to exam word!).
