Each academic year brings a fresh wave of first-year students unfamiliar with the college lifestyle and the nuances of Gardner-Webb University. This transitional moment is precisely when upperclass mentorships can be the most impactful to a new students’ success. During the week prior to this year’s orientation, a combined volunteer group of 26 Peer Leaders and 43 Big Brothers/Big Sisters gathered on the Gardner-Webb campus for a variety of team-building, leadership training and social exercises.
