The Speed School Alliance in Mentorship (SAM) program connects first-year engineering students (freshmen and transfers) with a Speed School graduate. These alumni mentors are ready to listen, inspire and help students navigate challenges and recognize opportunities. Students will learn what to expect in classes and how to approach new experiences; they will also gain career advice and valuable insights from alumni in the field. Alumni mentors will grow their networks and hone their management skills to become better professionals and leaders.
Students are matched with an upperclassman or alumni mentor based on common interests, background, academics and professional aspirations. To get started, students and alumni mentors register and complete an online survey to assess personality and experience.
