The International Student Mentorship Program (ISMP) is designed to help new international students develop friendships and adjust to their new learning and living environment. Our mentors are Nipissing University students who volunteer their time to help support you. Some mentors may have studied abroad, while others may be interested in going overseas in the future, but all of them have an interest in meeting new people and learning about different cultures.
Mentors are responsible for organizing trips, social events, and activities for international students during their time at Nipissing. We recommend and encourage all new international students participate in ISMP.
Members of the ISMP team are also available throughout the school year to help answer any questions you may have about your courses, campus procedures, on-campus living, the North Bay community, and much more.
