Since 2010, the Peer Mentorship Program has been helping ease the transition into 1L by matching first-year students with upper-year mentors who share similar academic and social interests. The program is administered through the Student Services Office under the direction of Francine Herlehy, Assistant Dean (Student Services) and Professor Donna-Marie Eansor, Faculty Advisor.
Aulona Arbana, Law III, will act as Student Coordinator for the program for the 2020-2021 academic year. Building on the many successes of previous student coordinators, Aulona will play a key role in the administration and development of this important program.
Aulona understands that mentorship is extremely important to the success of every student and has been regularly involved in peer mentorship since high school. As vice chair of the Social Orientation Committee, you are sure to see her advertising events to make law school a fun experience for incoming 1Ls. She has participated in Women in the Law throughout her first two years of law school, and also serves as co-chair of the Windsor Law High School Outreach Program (WLHO), which provides mentorship to high school students in Windsor. Aulona is excited to pool her diverse academic, personal and professional backgrounds to ensure both mentors and mentees gain a rewarding experience from the program.
Aulona is looking forward to welcoming and supporting the incoming Windsor Law class of 2023, and encourages you to email her at firstname.lastname@example.org, or just come say hi in person when we all come together!
