Why would you want a mentor?

With a mentor, you’ll have that extra ear and heart to hear out your fears and concerns as you journey through school, life, and beyond. Being involved with a mentor has significantly proven to deepen a student’s relationship with their college community, build social confidence and involvement, and strengthen academic success.
