Peer Mentorship

Your bridge to the Hopkins community.

The people around you are essential to your experience at Hopkins. Our peer mentorship programs will connect you with current students who are excited to share their experiences. They can give valuable advice on everything from studying for exams and managing your time to finding clubs that fit your interests. They’ll also help you transition to your new life at Homewood and in Baltimore.


PILOT is a peer-led tutoring program that organizes study teams around many of our courses. You’ll meet with your team weekly to review concepts and work through problems together.
