Vision

The METAS mentoring program seeks to A.C.T. on behalf of all Latino and Latin American freshmen students by:

  • Assisting first-year Latino students with their transition to college, especially during the first six weeks of classes;
  • Creating a sense of belonging and community at NIU; and
  • Together, encouraging the academic success and social well-being among Latino freshmen students.

Mission

The METAS mentoring program serves to provide a welcoming environment and a “home away from home” atmosphere for Latino freshmen students. The program assists them in their transition and adjustment to college life by providing social, cultural and academic support.
