The program seeks to create a network of support for 70 first-year students. This network is bolstered by strong undergraduate student collaborations; social events; faculty, graduate student, and peer mentorship, and a focus on sustaining interest and motivation to pursue a STEM major.
At the core of the STARS Program are the upper-level peer mentors, who foster tight-knit groups amongst the students in order to promote a richer first year experience. In addition to regular peer mentor group meetings and one-on-one advising, the program offers a series of panel discussions, informational sessions, professional development, and networking opportunities, led by upperclassmen, graduate students and or faculty.
Applications are open to incoming first-years at the start of the fall semester. All interested students are strongly encouraged to attend an information session prior to applying to the program.
