PUMP is a Pre‑Orientation program that focuses on peer mentoring to support first‑year minority‑ethnicity students as they adjust to life at Cabrini College.
PUMP stands for ‘Preparing Underrepresented Mentees for Progress.’
The program works in conjunction with the Office of Student Diversity Initiatives.
This peer-mentor program familiarizes first‑year students with Cabrini and the diversity in the campus and student activities.
Students in PUMP will move into residence halls early and get a head start in meeting each other and learning the campus and area around Cabrini.
The program pairs incoming students with an upperclass mentor to learn about the Cabrini experience.
Over the course of two and a half days, students go through a series of on‑ and off‑campus experiences that offer academic, cultural, and social support.
