I came in not expecting much honestly but my mentor was very helpful and informative. I feel more confident about my knowledge on Engineering at the university. The matching was beyond perfect and I would definitely encourage others to join.

I think the most important thing that made my first mentor experience successful was their interest in my program. Because they wanted to pursue the same major and minor, I was able to offer the best advice and made our meetings productive and useful for both of us.
