FG RAMS Mentor Program

Purpose

The RAMS Program was developed to equip first-generation students with the knowledge and skills to succeed in higher education. Through the FG RAMS Mentor program, incoming freshmen gain a support system of a peer mentor, a family group of other first generation students, and ASU faculty and staff. RAMS program participants engage in weekly RAMS sessions, monthly Super Saturday enrichment events, and monthly one-on-one sessions with the RAMS program specialist in the Multicultural Center.

Goals

  • Provide valuable skill sets necessary for a successful transition into college.
  • Connect participants with first-generation role models and mentors that will encourage and support their higher education goals.
  • Increase participants’ cultural awareness through campus and community activities.

Participants

Mentees (incoming freshmen)

  • First generation students (neither parent graduated from a two- or four-year college or university)
  • Enrolled full-time at ASU
  • Committed to ASU for the full duration of the program

Mentors (current upperclassmen)

  • First-generation students
  • Have attended ASU for a minimum of two long semesters
  • Have earned at least a 2.25 GPA for the most recent semester
  • Enrolled full-time at ASU
  • Committed to ASU for the full duration of the program

Participant Benefits

Students who participate in the FG RAMS Mentor program receive personalized attention from a program specialist to help develop and reach both social and academic goals. Participants also have access to cultural activities, community events, and campus organizations and services that will serve as a support system throughout their time at ASU. FG RAMS Mentor program participants also have the opportunity to apply for book scholarships from the Multicultural Program. Once the freshmen participants have completed one successful year at ASU, they have the opportunity to become mentors to future students.
