International Peer Mentoring Blog

Hello! Hola! Bonjour! Xin chào! Ciao! Merhaba! 안녕하세요! 您好! Hallo! Здравствуйте! مرحبا!


We are peer mentors for international students at Niagara University. By being a peer mentor, we live the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul by serving others and helping them adjust to life on campus and in the United States. We are so eager to learn about other cultures of international students from all over the world, make new friends and help the university become a more welcoming community. 

As a mentor, we welcome your ideas and feedback on how to make this the best experience for all. If you ever have any questions or you’re asked to explain something you don’t understand, feel free to contact the Office of International Relations (DePaul Hall, 716.286.8360, and we’ll be happy to help you.

As an international student, if you would like to group with a peer mentor to learn more about U.S. culture and get help with being situated at NU, please contact the Office of International Relations.

We are committed to making Niagara a better place!
