The Mentor/Mentee Relationship
Whether you’re an incoming freshman straight from high school, a returning student who started your college adventure 20 years ago, or a current student coming back in for another round, transitioning into the college atmosphere can be an overwhelming and daunting quest.
Mentors are experienced students who are trained and knowledgeable in many aspects of the university. Mentors are trained just for YOU. Each department structures their mentor program to support the students who use their services, so there are many ways to develop the mentor/mentee relationship. Ultimately, it’s about YOU and mentors want to help YOU succeed in your college experience; so you can discuss what kind of support you are looking for with the department contact.
