Why have a mentor?
There are many benefits of having a mentor. The role of a faculty mentor is to provide encouragement and guidance as you go through your college career. A mentor will help you set goals and find the path and momentum to achieve them.
How to select a mentor
Your mentor may be a faculty member in your pre-major. Or you may ask any instructor that you have rapport with. Don’t be shy! The faculty member that you approach with a mentorship request will feel honored that you asked!
Sometimes, due to a heavy workload, a faculty member may not be able to enter into a mentorship agreement with you. Don’t be offended. That instructor should be able to help you find another good match.
What if I don’t know a professor who would be a good match?
