Juniors and Seniors
The FastStart Altoona mentoring program connects new Penn State Altoona students from diverse backgrounds with an upper-level student mentor and a faculty or staff mentor.
Upper-level students at Penn State Altoona have the unique ability to help their freshmen counterparts adjust to the college lifestyle by sharing their own experiences.
As a junior or senior, you might remember that making the transition to college wasn't easy, especially if you had to move away from home. You know all the best places to eat and where to go to rent a movie or hang out. Just being there to answer questions about classes or the Altoona area could help a new student tremendously.
If you are a junior or senior at Penn State Altoona with a GPA of 3.0 or above and are interested in becoming a mentor for FastStart Altoona, please contact:
