Tiger Transitions Mentorship Program
Tiger Transitions Mentorship Program is a peer mentoring program that connects current Bridge to Clemson students with previous Bridge to Clemson students to support them in their transition to Clemson. Former Bridge to Clemson students will serve as Peer Mentors to assist current Bridge to Clemson students (mentees) during the student’s spring semester at Tri-County Technical College. Mentors offer opportunities for social interaction, strategies for academic success and assist mentees in successfully transitioning to Clemson. If you have questions about how to get involved, contact Tiger Transitions via email.
