Peer Mentor Writing Support

The Hunter–Bellevue School of Nursing offers a writing-assistance program called the HBSON E-Writing Center.

This service is designed to help students become better editors of their own work and develop their writing in important areas such as logical flow and organization, avoiding plagiarism, using APA format, and addressing challenges with grammar. The peer mentors do not edit papers; rather, they give students feedback on drafts before the final paper is turned in.

This free mentoring service is open to all HBSON students. Students can e-mail their written work and requests 24/7 and will receive a mentor’s response within 48 hours. Students can also meet with peer mentors in-person during weekly open hours in the library or by appointment.

This semester’s mentors are graduate students Amanda Anderson (lead peer mentor who has been doing this work for two years) and Jennifer Brown. They will also be available to students in the library on Mondays and Tuesdays from 2pm to 4pm. Feel free to contact them at if you have any questions or requests.

Phishing Spam Warning

Photo credit:

Recently there has been an increase in the amount of “phishing” or “scam” emails. You will find these fake messages pretending to come from your bank, Google, or a credit card company. They also may pretend to be from Hunter College, CUNY email or web administration.  Some of these fake messages look official and are hard to recognize, but there are some telltale signs:

  • Asking for a password or other personal or secret information
  • Warning about being over quota on an email account
  • Asking for verification of personal information
  • Containing web links which you must click to do some kind of verification
  • Use of all capital letters or other non-standard text.

If you have responded to any of these fake messages, including clicking on a web link, you should immediately change your password. Hunter College passwords can be changed at the NetID central site. If you have concerns or questions about scam emails, please contact the Hunter College HelpDesk.
