Alumni mentors are making a real difference in students’ lives. Many mentorship programs on campus, including ASK (Alumni Sharing Knowledge) Night, the Business Leadership Program, and Take a Logger to Work Day, match students with role models, often professionals in their fields who can advise students on career development and life after college. Alumni who participate report that the experience of guiding outstanding young people has been extremely rewarding. We asked three alumni mentors to share their stories.
