Community Mentors & Community Advisors

Upperclassmen Living 

Community Mentors

Community mentors — known as CMs — are upper-level students who have been hired based upon their level of maturity and social skills. CMs live in Pioneer Hall, Conestoga Hall and the upper floors of Lawrence Hall. They create programs and events to help sophomore residents successfully transition from their first year of college through the wide array of opportunities in their second year. 

The Sophomore Experience 

The CMs design the Sophomore Experience, giving students unique opportunities such as:

  • Exploring personal educational and career paths
  • Attending students activities involving other organizations on campus
  • Going on Mystery Bus tours 

Community Advisors 

Community advisors — known as CAs — are upper-level students who have been hired to guide their peers through the final years of their college experience. CAs live in the Boulevard Apartments, creating an energetic and dynamic community in the heart of Downtown Pittsburgh.

Junior/Senior Experience

Through the Junior/Senior Experience, CAs create programs that range from educational to social in nature, giving students a well-rounded experience that keeps them engaged and active. Those may include:

  • Networking with employers
  • Collaborating with peers
  • Developing career skills
  • Dessert & Dialog Series 
  • Senior Week
