Would you like to have someone to help you answer all of those questions you have about your first year in the Faculty of Science at the University of Windsor?
What is MySci Mentorship?
MySci Mentorship works to pair upper year students (mentors) with first year students (mentees) within the Faculty of Science based on program major and similar interests. The program is designed so that upper years may pass on their wisdom, skills and expertise to new science students. Mentors provide valuable information to their mentees including which courses to take and how to decode their degree audit. Mentors communicate with their mentees via email, instant messaging as well as in-person meetings suited to their schedules in order to advise students on their first year courses and answer any questions they may have about their university experience. In addition to teaching important skills such as time management, organization and how to study for tests, mentors are also given the opportunity to share their personal experiences within their respective program of study thus far. Mentors also refer their mentees to the many on-campus resources offered at the University of Windsor during their transition to university-life. Mentorship through MySci is a mutually beneficial experience between both the mentor and mentee as mentors are able to practice their leadership and communication skills and mentees benefit from guidance from someone who has been in their position before, throughout their first year as a science student.
If you are entering your first year with a major or minor in a program within the Faculty of Science (Biology, Chemistry/Biochemistry, Computer Science, Earth and Environmental Science, Environmental Studies, Economics, Forensics, General Science, Mathematics & Statistics or Physics) and wish to have a mentor throughout the course of your first year, please fill out the form below. We will work to pair you with an upper year student in the same program and if possible, with similar interests as you. This person will be able to help you by sharing their tips for studying and success. Your responsibilities as a mentee will include keeping up on-going communication with your mentor (via in-person meetings, instant messaging, email, etc.) and checking your UWindsor email account on a regular basis, as that is our main form of communication.
Your MySci Mentor should be in contact with you within a couple weeks of the completion of your application. If you happen to not hear anything from us or a MySci Mentor after the third week of classes, please contact the MySci Coordinator at email@example.com
If you would like more information about the program before applying, please do not hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: This is a mentorship program, NOT a tutoring program! Your mentor will provide you with advice and guidance but not necessarily tutoring.
