Each One Teaches One

Each One Teaches One (E1T1) is a peer mentoring program designed to connect incoming freshmen to The Ohio State University at Lima community. Students who participate will attend workshops during the summer to jumpstart their academic career. During this program students will also be matched, via an application process, with a successful student mentor of a similar background and interests. Students who participate in the E1T1 program learn about campus resources and build meaningful relationships with the campus community.
