Quincy University's ACI Peer Mentoring Program nurtures five first-generation freshmen from small-town Illinois

For Randi Scheer, Kayce Smith and Kara McCleary, arriving at Quincy University for freshman year felt like moving to the big city. Compared to the small towns and even smaller high schools they left behind, settling into Quincy, Illinois’ community of 40,000+ seemed as daunting as moving to Chicago or New York. But at Quincy University, the three young women found they shared more than small-town upbringing and homesickness. Now they are linked by a shared commitment to future careers in nursing -- and by the support of ACI’s Peer Mentoring Program.
