We are looking for second year students of journalism willing to act as mentors to the new first years. The task should not be onerous. We are looking for sensible, sympathetic types (i.e.any of you) who are willing to help and support new arrivals. There are no formal duties, the university has professionals on duty to advise about issues such as money, housing and health. But newcomers may find it helpful to have a more experienced student to whom they can turn for informal guidance and friendship. If you would like to help please e-mail Anastasia (firstname.lastname@example.org) and headline your e-mail Volunteer Mentors. If enough of you volunteer we will discuss with you how the scheme should work before term begins. .
