Have you ever …
…wished you’d had guidance from someone as you transitioned from college to career?
…wondered if you were making the best decisions in college to help you later in your career?
…needed the advice of someone “in the know?”
If you answered “yes” to any of the questions, consider being involved in the Spartan Sponsors Mentor Program in which students and alumni with similar career interests are paired with each other, both on campus at the annual Homecoming Spartan Sponsors Mentor Program meeting, and throughout the year with phone calls and email. The connections made are a win-win, broadening the student’s perspectives and allowing practicing professionals to share insights and “give back” in a way that can help a young person start down a path to success.
If you are interested, please fill out the Spartan Sponsor application available at the link below. The deadline to sign up for this program is October 1 of each year. There will a mandatory training session before you are paired with a mentor. You will be emailed with training dates to choose from. Once you are paired with your “Spartan Sponsor,” you will attend the kickoff event the Thursday of Homecoming weekend. The mentor relationship lasts one school year. You and your sponsor may choose to continue your mentoring relationship across consecutive years, or you can be paired with someone new each year.
