Creating Opportunity, Recognizing Excellence (C.O.R.E.)

The C.O.R.E. program was established to help first year students become better acclimated to the campus. First-year students are paired with upper-class students who provide both academic and social support as students transition into the University culture. Mentors (upper-class students) assist Mentees (first-year students) in becoming acquainted with the University and its resources. For more information, please contact C.O.R.E. at coreatuofi@gmail.com.
