Program pairs students, alumni mentors

November 11, 2014

It’s all about making connections.

In order to thrive, we’ve got to reach out and talk with those who have “been there,” who have more experience than us.  Why not let the NIU Student-Alumni Mentoring Program be your ticket to finding that connection?  Let an alumni mentor be a guide, a friend, and a resource who will share his or her educational and professional experience to help pave the way for you to succeed at NIU and beyond.  The NIU Student-Alumni Mentoring Program is looking for student mentees to connect with NIU alumni mentors who are ready and willing to help you.

Mentors are willing to discuss your personal and professional goals as well as offer guidance based on their experience.  You will have the opportunity to meet your mentor face-to-face, through social media, and emails and phone calls.  Talk about classes, career goals, college life.  Your mentor is here to help!

How do you find a mentor?  Glad you asked!  Complete the Student-Alumni Mentoring Program Application.  Juniors and seniors will be given priority for matching.  Potential mentees will need to complete Mentee Orientation and training before being matched with a mentor. Fill out the application and start connecting!
