• New Student Mentors

    New Student Mentors (NSM) are current Hamline students prepared to welcome you and help you throughout your first year at Hamline.  

    These enthusiastic students are able to help answer your questions, show you around campus, learn the ins and outs of Hamline, and help ease your transition to a new college campus. 

    They will serve as your guide throughout Piper Passages and your first semester at Hamline. Once classes begin, NSMs continue to act as a resource to transfer students and assist with TRANSFERmation Events. They serve as mentors and role models for students new to the Hamline community.
