Meet Peer Mentor Kathy Flores

Mentoring Support

MAPS Peer Mentors support and encourage first-year students in their transition to CSULB. Through one-on-one interactions, Peer Mentors guide students, provide information and access to campus resources and services, and show students what’s up at The Beach

Advising Support

The MAPS program collaborates with instructors and academic advisors for Mathematics, Written Communication, and American Language Institute Progress Reporting. The goal is to connect with students as early as possible during the semester to introduce them to campus resources and services to increase their chances of successfully completing their courses.

Placement Support

The MAPS program can help answer questions about Mathematics, Written Communication, and American Language Institute course placement, as well as Early Start Program requirements and Directed Self-Placement.
