Pre-Science Students: Be a Mentee
Enhance your success by being mentored
How would I benefit?
Being a part of the Science Mentoring Program is an excellent way to learn what it takes to be successful as a science student from an experienced peer who has gone through the process.
A mentee is a freshman or sophomore who is matched with an advanced science student/mentor to meet on a regular basis to get “insider tips” like:
- Who to see about what and when
- What professors really want
- Where to connect with free resources to support your success
- How to grow skills in demand by employers
- How to prepare and apply for paid internships
- How to prepare for graduate or professional school
- And more...
Mentees also earn scholarships.
The commitment for the mentorship program includes:
- Attend an orientation session with your assigned mentor.
- Meet with your mentor once every week in the first month and once every two weeks until the end of the academic year; program concludes before finals week, April 2014.
- Attend a minimum of four student success workshops conducted by Career Development Center before May 31, 2014. (We offer more than 14 different ones at different times).
- Meet with the Mentor Program Supervisor once, to debrief about their experience with the program before May 31, 2014.
- Participate in 2 out of 3 special events in spring semester:
- Professional Day
- Connections event
- Science Extravaganza
