Why do we need to research peer mentors?
Purpose Explore the effects of the peer mentoring on the student mentors This study has three objectives: 1. Determine the benefits of the peer mentor program 2.

Focus Groups Conducted in the Fall 2018 Semester Group of 37 mentors in the Department of Animal Science 4 focus groups total, consisting of 6-9 peer mentors in each group Audio recording that was transcribed as well as a moderator to conduct the focus groups
Focus Groups Started by advising the anonymous nature of the focus group Importance and purpose of study Food was provided throughout one hour sessions Provided list of probing and relevant questions to the research such as: How have your experiences as a peer mentor impacted your college career?
