About our Peer Mentors
Student Peer Mentor: Nathaniel Beard
Started At Bates: Fall 2019
Program: Digital Media
Why I chose Bates: Back in medieval times (early 2019), I was not doing so great in my High School classes as the traditional high school environment simply did not work for me. So I went around to a few places and eventually found success at Bates!
Why Are You a peer mentor: Simple, to help others find the same success that I did 🙂
Hobbies: I play games, make videos, and collect stuff
Student Peer Mentor: Jacob Colby
Started At Bates: Fall 2021
Program: Digital Media
Dream Job: My dream job is to become a video editor, specifically editing shorter videos like commercials and mini documentaries. I have always had a passion for video editing, and feel it is a career that I will excel in.
Why I chose Bates: After my junior year of high school, I felt like my high school was stunting my growth as a student. When I found out about Bates and the high school program, I was stoked. I chose Bates because it would allow me grow in many areas, and get a head start on my career.
Why Are You a peer mentor: I became a Peer Mentor because I feel the community that Bates has created is great and wanted to be apart of it. Everyone has been very helpful every step of the way, and I want to provide that sense of community to future and current students.
Advice for incoming students: ASK QUESTIONS!!! No question is a stupid question.
How I spend my free time: Playing video games, listing to music, going on walks throughout the city
