  • The time commitment is only about one hour a month at times that are convenient for you. 
  • All meetings with your mentee can be virtual so you can participate from anywhere in the country or the world! You can also get together in person if able.
  • You will be matched with a student with similar major or interests.
  • If you are interested, please complete the application by October 15Link to application
  • If you have questions, feel free to email Kristy (mount.11@osu.edu) or Eva (bradshaw.3@osu.edu). Eva served as mentor last year and is happy to share her experience.

As you consider, please read the comments from some of last year’s participants when asked about the positive points of the program.

  • Sharing experiences that have helped me grow as a person.
  • Being able to provide guidance to my mentee, building a new relationship, hearing about current college life and challenges from a different generation.
  • It was good to be able to help provide resources and to pose questions that the student may not have previously considered. I believe we both grew during this process.
  • I enjoyed getting advice from someone who has been through some of what I have and still been successful.
  • I received some good advice, and it was just fun to talk to someone older who had similar interests.
  • Great concept, good job matching people up, the “rewards” (coffee, scholarship) are a nice touch to keep motivation up.
  • The ability to connect, especially during this difficult time. I tried to provide information I would’ve thought was helpful when I graduated 10 years ago.
  • Loved getting to talk about stuff with someone who could give advice and just listen 🙂
  • Connecting with today’s student on campus, learning about life on campus (how much it’s changed), discussions of networking/career options.
  • The fact that we both enjoyed our time together. It was nice having some guidance, but I enjoyed the freedom to make it want we wanted also. Most meetings we went over an hour and were able to talk about many different topics.
