Abstract

The EDGE Mentoring Program helps incoming freshmen transition more easily into Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). In the EDGE Program, mentees are paired with sophomore, junior, and senior mentors, who guide incoming students in three areas: academic, social, and personal wellness. Additionally, in today’s college environment, mobile applications (apps) assist college students in areas such as time management, sleep, fitness, and social networking. The goal of this interactive qualifying project (IQP) was to develop a mobile app that will help peer mentors in the EDGE Program. The mentors in the EDGE Program could then use the app to help their mentees succeed.
