Student Success Scholars Program Testimonials

Faculty Feedback

"I think it's a great opportunity to get to know each other on another level and plan for success.  If you want to have a greater impact on a student's life, you should consider it."

Rick Mulvihill
Instructor of Criminal Justice

"I think the benefit for me is that I get to meet students who are outside of my program. It is interesting to get to work with students from other disciplines. The benefit for the mentees is the same; they may get a different perspective from a different professor than they get from their preceptor or other program professor.

Becoming a mentor is a way to reach out to students and have them feel comfortable with faculty. It allows more personal contact with students we may never have met otherwise."

Associate Professor of Psychology

Becoming a mentor ensures that you are helping someone achieve his or her goals. While the mentees absolutely gain skills from this program that are hard to maintain, the mentor gains a sense of accomplishment as well."

"I like the program. Mentees are paired with mentors based on their specific major. Mentees get to attend workshops of their interest or informative workshops that give insight to other aspects of attending a university, such as the financial aid process or personal budgeting.

A student should become a mentor because there may student that needs someone that understands their specific situation."

"It is a very beneficial program for both the mentors and the mentees.Mentees are able to better adjust to college life and academics, while mentors are able to gain leadership skills.

A person should become a mentor so that they can gain leadership skills, teamwork skills, and so they can use their own experiences to help someone in need."

"I think the program can make a difference for at risk students. In most occupations, we will be called upon at times to advocate and advise someone. Being a mentor in Student Success Scholars Program will help prepare you for that role later in life."

"I think Student Success Scholars Program is a really great program to have in place here at Stockton. I think it is important to provide struggling students with support from peers, faculty, and staff. These concepts are not taken into consideration at every institution.

Someone should become a mentor because it is a rewarding experience in which you find out a lot about yourself and how to work with others."
