How did you learn about this opportunity?

I learned about the Alumni Mentor Program through various emails from the College of Liberal Arts. This opportunity was also posted on the College of Liberal Arts homepage.

Tell us a little bit about your experience.

I really enjoyed participating in the Alumni Mentor Program. My mentor and I talked about decisions and plans that were pivotal to my career and college success. We were a perfect fit and I honestly learned so much from her and her professional experience!

How did this experience impact you academically?

My mentor helped me create goals and stick to them.

My mentor helped me create goals and stick to them. We touched base every few weeks to assess my progress and address any concerns. My mentor helped me realign my focus when we connected and advised me on a variety of academic decisions.

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

In a few weeks, I will begin my first career as a Human Resources Associate for a company that I interned with last summer. My mentor certainly helped me prepare for the internship and job by reviewing my resume, offering professional working advice, and connecting me to other people in the field of Human Resources.

Would you recommend this experience to other Liberal Arts students?

Yes. It is important to learn from others who have a broader understanding of the working world and can give you advice on becoming a young professional.
