SAMentors is a mentoring and leadership organization sponsored by Multicultural Student Services (MSS) and the Department of Student Activities. The organization is dedicated to helping freshmen and transfer students make successful transitions into college.  "Mentors" are upperclassmen involved in the organization and "Protégés" are freshmen and transfer students who are paired with upperclassmen.  The organization is non-discriminatory.

The purpose of SAMentors is to aid the social and academic transitions of freshmen and transfer students into college life at Sam Houston State University.

The goal of the organization is to maintain freshmen and transfer student retention as members are encouraged to continue to become involved after their first year at SHSU as mentors in the organization.  SAMentor Protégés (freshmen and transfer students) learn valuable leadership skills by being lead first by their mentors.  Members of SAMentors are required to maintain a 2.25 GPA and participate in all SAMentor social and academic events.

Participation in the SAMentors organization and all of it's events is FREE!
