USC implements ‘LGBTQ Peer Mentoring Program’

The University of South Carolina will now offer a new LGBTQ Peer Mentoring Program that caters to incoming freshman and transfer students.

USC’s Office of Multicultural Student Affairs (OMSA) announced the program this week, according to The Daily Gamecock, saying it will provide mentorship opportunities for LGBTQ students to help smooth their transition from high school into college.

The program is peer-based and offers “opportunities to meet other first-year students who identify on the LGBTQ spectrum through socials with mentees and mentors as well as events that will help students adjust to their new academic and social atmosphere.”
