Meet Your Mentors

At New Student Orientation you will officially check into Cal Lutheran. You will be ushered by your Peer Advisors through activities geared to introduce you to the CLU community.

You will meet your classmates, figure out where your classes are, find out what the surrounding community has to offer, move into your residence hall (if you are living on campus) and much more! You will also meet your Mentor Team which is made up of two to four people.

  •  Peer Advisor Lead - An upperclassmen student leader that help facilitate orientation and oversee all Peer Advisors and assist them throughout the PA Program. 
  • Peer Advisor - An upperclassmen student leader who is responsible for guiding you through the first weekend and co-teaching your Freshman Seminar course during the Fall Semester. NOTE: Some groups have two Peer Advisors.
  • Faculty Advisor- A member of the CLU faculty who teaches your Freshman Seminar class with your Peer Advisor(s).
