Get to Know SAM

The Student-Alumni Mentoring (SAM) program is a great resource for learning about careers and connecting with professionals. Alumni mentors provide career advice on networking, job searching, interviewing, balancing obligations and other life-skills to undergraduate students in all academic areas. Matches are assigned in October and the program continues throughout the academic year (although we believe the relationship can last a lifetime). Registration for the 2017-18 program year is currently available.
