What is a BISC Mentor?

The Bader International Study Centre (BISC) Mentors are a select group of student leaders who attended the BISC in their first year of undergraduate studies and have completed their second year of undergraduate studies at Queen’s University’s Kingston campus. Working closely with the BISC Admission Office at Queen’s and with Student Services at the BISC they will help ease the transition from first year at the BISC to second year on the Kingston campus, by providing support for returning BISC students and creating safe social environments to help returning BISC students integrate into the Queen’s community.
