First-Year Experience Mentor Groups

When you arrive on campus for New Student Orientation, you'll get the opportunity to meet your First-Year Experience Mentor and your mentor group members Sunday evening. First-Year Experience Mentors are volunteer upper-class student leaders that have a desire to make your experience as a student at UD the best it can be.

You can expect your First-Year Experience Mentor to…

  • answer any questions you may have about campus. If they don't know the answer, they'll help you find it.
  • help you to get to know your other group members and students that may have similar interests as you. If you want to join a club or organization, they can help you out. If you want to start something new on campus, they can help with that, too.
  • guide you from event to event throughout New Student Orientation. They want to make sure that you don't miss a thing!
  • contact you throughout the fall semester to hang out, go to events, help you get involved, and remind you of important dates like when to register for spring classes.
  • be a listening ear if you've got a problem or just need someone to talk to anytime.

Mines of Spain Service Learning Trip

As new students joining the UD family, you’ll find the opportunity to volunteer in your new community right away at the Mines of Spain, a beautiful park located along the Mississippi bluffs. All new students registered for World View Seminar I are required to attend the service opportunity scheduled in the morning on one of the three days of Orientation (consult your personalized schedule for which day).   

This project is the first meeting of your World View Seminar One class, so it is very important that you attend. You will be completing a class assignment based on the experience. You, along with your classmates, First-Year Experience Mentor, and course instructor, will complete a service project that will help to enhance the Mines of Spain. 

Examples of the types of things you may be doing include (but are not limited to): collecting seeds, moving gravel or wood chips, painting picnic benches, putting in fence posts, or walking the trails to be sure they are clear of trash.  We know that you’ll enjoy this special learning experience and feel great about getting to serve in your community. 

 In order to help you prepare for this experience, consider bringing or wearing the following items:

  • Clothes that you do not mind getting dirty
  • Long pants - strongly suggested as you may be in some areas with heavy brush
  • Closed-toed shoes - i.e. sneakers or hiking boots - No flip-flops!
  • Backpack or bag to carry your items with you
  • Sunscreen - you will be outside for this experience
  • Light rain coat or windbreaker in case of light rain
  • Sunglasses and/or a hat to shield the sun
  • Additional water or sports drink if desired - You will be provided with two bottles of water
  • Any other personal items that you will need for this period of time (allergy medicine, etc.)
