Student Coordinators

Hi, I’m Emma Mallon and I am a junior from Hartland, MI studying Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Materials Science and Engineering. I joined the program as a mentor in 2016, and I am very excited to be a coordinator of the Peer Mentorship Program this year! In my free time I enjoy giving tours for the Office of Undergraduate Admissions through Campus Day and assisting in student recruitment through Student Ambassadors. I am also a member of Michigan Neuroprosthetics, a biomedical design team, and the Michigan Pompon Team. I’m very excited to assist a new group of mentors in making first-year students’ experience at Michigan one they will never forget! Feel free to reach out to me at if you have any questions or concerns. Go Blue! 



Hello, my name is James Wich. I am originally from Lighthouse Point, Florida, but I gave up the nice warm weather to study Aerospace Engineering and pursue a minor in Computer Science at the University of Michigan. I am currently a sophomore and joined the COE Peer Mentorship Program during my Freshman year as a mentee, deciding to become a mentor the year after and eventually becoming one of the coordinators for the program at the end of my sophomore year. When I am not bustling between classes, I can be found working in the Wilson Center as the Design Lead for the Human Powered Submarine Team, in the Union/League acting as Secretary for Engineering Student Government, or in the McMahon Cosmology Lab doing research with deep space energy detection plates. I am very excited to take on this new role assisting mentors and planning events for the program as I believe that the program provides an invaluable resource for incoming students who are a part of the program. Please contact me at if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. Live long and prosper…
