A Faculty of Mentors

  • Mentors are teachers, leaders, coaches, friends-the total package. They are professors who take a real interest in your goals and aspirations.
  • In small classes, you will get to know your professors well and they you so they can recommend opportunities that you might not have thought of.
  • They will invite you to be part of a lab research team, connect you to your dream internships, and write graduate school recommendations that set you apart.
  • They will meet you for coffee to discuss classes and projects and cheer you on at your concert or game.
  • They will be advisors and friends you can turn to long after you graduate.
