The Telemachus Ancient History Mentor Program (or, as we are more informally known, Tele’s Angels) was founded in 2002 by a group of second-year undergraduate students after they observed the need for greater support, resources and communication for and amongst first-year students.
The transition from secondary education or the workforce to university life can be a difficult one. With this in mind, the Ancient History Department is one of the only Departments in the entire University that offers a comprehensive Mentoring Program, run BY students,FOR students.
The program seeks to offer free academic and personal assistance to all first-year Ancient History students on a one-to-one basis, as well as providing networking opportunities between students and staff. Most importantly, we encourage students to become involved in the Ancient History community here at Macquarie University, and to relax and enjoy their studies!
The Mentors are all passionate and committed Ancient History students at various stages of their journeys through higher education, so they can easily relate to the needs of first-year students.
Students are encouraged to contact the Mentor/s relevant to their area of enquiry.
In undertaking all of the above, with integrity, we hope to learn and personally grow from this experience.
