Mentoring Program Helps Freshmen Transitionl

Coming from a town with a population of less than 20,000 to Texas Tech University, where the fall enrollment was more than 33,000, can make some students feel intimidated. The College of Agricultural Sciences & Natural Resources (CASNR) has been helping with this transition for more than 10 years with its Ag Pals program.

Ag Pals is a mentorship program where current undergraduate students volunteer to be mentors and are paired with incoming undergraduate students, pals, to guide and be a friend throughout their transition to Texas Tech.
