Mentorship & Network

Culture of Mentorship

From the small class sizes to a variety of research opportunities, our learning environment provides the chance for personalized attention. Faculty mentor students, pushing you to make new discoveries.  You’ll build relationships with professors and advisors who not only guide you academically, but also professionally and personally.

Add to that our strong alumni network, and you’ll quickly learn how easy it is to receive mentorship and explore job opportunities. There is also a wealth of career resources on campus, including our Career Development Center and a variety of networking events throughout the year.
