“I believe that mentoring is important because it provides a unique type of individualized support to navigate whatever you may be going through. Mentors can provide knowledge, resources, and connections, as well as expose you to alternative possibilities that you may have not considered otherwise.”

“Mentoring is important because it allows you to learn from those who have forged the trail before you. Having a relationship built on trust and support is vital to our personal and professional growth, and can help you make better decisions now and in the future.”

“To me, mentoring is important because it gives someone a chance to learn from and grow through a relationship with someone else. We’ve all had those seasons where we needed some guidance or simply someone to talk to about life that may have a bit of wisdom they can pass on to us, and that is when a mentoring relationship can change our lives.”

“Mentoring is important because it not only opens doors to new opportunities, but it also helps you to recognize other pathways that you otherwise wouldn't know existed. In my experience, it can change your perception of yourself, the world around you, and it might even change the course of your life. The mentor-mentee connection is a vital part of having an enriched collegiate experience.”
