Meet an Alumni Mentor

Why participate in the mentoring program?

What is life like after college? What will I do after I graduate?  How can I ensure that I have the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed after graduation?

An alumni mentor can help you with many of the questions you may have about your education and future career. Alumni mentors serve as a guide, answering questions, giving advice, and helping you to learn more about your field of interest and about yourself.


How can I enroll in the program?

If you are a student in the Eberly College of Science, then you are eligible to participate in the mentoring program. Please complete the online mentoring request form so we can collect your information. After you complete the form, we will match you with an alumni mentor whose professional experiences closely match your interests.


What should I expect as a participant of the mentoring program?

Regular communication with your mentor will help you to get the most out of the program. You can communicate with your mentor via e-mail, phone, or visits to your mentor's workplace if your mentor chooses. You may wish to ask your mentor about areas of study, career options, or their career or area(s) of expertise and interest. This is not a job placement program. You should not expect your mentor to offer you employment or internships.


Annual Mentor Dinner

All participants will be invited to dinner in early spring semester in order to meet one another and set mentoring goals.
