Program testimonials

“Law school can be an isolating experience, and having people you know you can count on for advice and counsel can make all of the difference. Without my peer mentor group I can honestly say I don’t know if I could have done as well as I did last semester.” – Rebecca Mayhew

“The encouraging, familial atmosphere drew me to Campbell and the peer mentoring program exemplifies those qualities. The program is a great way for the school to demonstrate that the encouragement and friendly demeanor doesn’t end upon acceptance.” – Katie Terry
