How did you learn about this opportunity?

I actually learned about the Liberal Arts Alumni Mentor Program while sitting outside on campus next to a nice man that mentors in the program. He began a conversation with me to be polite that led to him telling me about the program and why it would be a good fit for me.

The mentoring program has given me confidence in my future career endeavors because I have someone to lean on and get advice from whenever need be.

Tell us a little bit about your experience.

I am planning to attend a physician assistant program in the future and was looking for a mentor to guide me through the process and to provide me with knowledge and useful tips to get me in the door. My mentor is a general surgeon that has helped me make choices leading up to my application process this summer. The mentor program has given me confidence in my future career endeavors because I have someone to lean on and get advice from whenever need be.

How did this experience impact you academically?

The experience with my mentor helped a little in my academics, but mostly in resume building by knowing what will increase my chances of acceptance.

What are your career goals and plans?  How did this experience impact them?

I plan to become a physician assistant in the future, hopefully specializing in a field of surgery. The experience with my mentor has definitely increased my chances of acceptance into a great program.

Would you recommend this experience to other Liberal Arts students?

I would recommend the mentor program to other students because it is important to have someone in your field that you can look up to. Your mentor will also guide you and make you feel confident in your future.
