I was born and raised in Southern Brazil, and soccer was my biggest passion since I learned to walk! Actually, soccer was the reason why I came to UWS. During my youth I did several different volunteer works. Added with my own experiences and the education I had, it helped to make me see the world with different eyes. If there is one thing that I want during my life is to make a difference in the life of those around me.
Hi, I'm Marisa Soliz. I'm from the Twin Cities! I love doctor shows like Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice. I am Mexican-American.
Hi, my name is James. I'm a non-traditional student at the age of 27. I love MMORPG's, football, basketball, and fishing. I am majoring in legal studies. I eventually hope to get a J.D. and become a lawyer.
I'm a sophomore majoring in English and minoring in Writing and History. My favorite past times are writing, horseback riding, and drawing and listening to music. I love the small campus environment! I look forward to meeting people
I am a third year, psychology student and I love animals of every sort. I enjoy horseback riding, snowboarding, and playing hockey. I'm from Tomahawk, WI and I have 2 other siblings. When I grow old I want to own a coffee shop and travel the world!

See what some of our students have said about their Peer Mentor
"I have somebody who I can relate to and who can explain stuff to me in a way I understand."
"She has helped me learn to better manage my time and develop connections with other freshman students. As a result of the program I have a better understanding of the curriculum at UWS. It's a greater experience than I have ever had before."
"My mentor made this semester a better experience!"
"She is someone who understands what I'm going through and is actually in one of my classes."
