The CEOAS GUIDE mentoring program provides the opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to connect within the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences.
Through conversations with their graduate mentor, undergraduate mentees will have the opportunity to learn about graduate school and to explore academic and career pathways.
The program provides graduate mentors the opportunity to develop mentoring and communication skills that will help them in their professional and academic pursuits.
Who can participate?
What undergraduate mentees have said about GUIDE: I was able to meet with a graduate student in my field of study who was very knowledgeable on the subject. We hit it off well, shared many interests, and became good friends. I learned a lot about opportunities outside the classroom for geology, including research internships across the country, as well as lab work on campus. The setting was very casual and stress free. Our meetings fit well into my schedule and I faced zero issues whatsoever.
What graduate student mentors have said about GUIDE: I got to share my experiences with someone interested in going to grad school. I got to give someone information and guidance that I wish I would have had. And I got to know an interesting and kind undergraduate student who was fun to talk with.
