The peer-mentoring program at BYU-Idaho was designed to help new students get acclimated to the campus.
Kimball Benson, the peer-mentoring coordinator for Student Support, said the program started because the presidency of the university thought the best way to mentor students would be to have their peers mentor them.
"It's part of the BYU-I culture," Brother Benson said.
Brother Benson said the program went through a few
semesters of development with student leaders, and the full program kicked off last semester in the fall 2016 semester.
He said students who know the campus, are experienced and have a desire to serve are all invited to apply to be a mentor on campus.
