How Do students Get Paired With Their Mentors? 


New students who are accepted into the Aspire Program are paired with an upperclassman who has been attending UW-River Falls for more than one academic year. We try our best to pair new students who are otherwise known as "Mentees" with their mentor based on information shared on their application.
