Engineering Alumni Mentoring Program Zooms to Success

Each fall, the College of Engineering partners with the Office of Alumni Relations to host the Engineering Mentoring Dinner—an annual event to connect first-year engineering students with alumni mentors. In October 2020, the program was hosted on Zoom for the first time ever… with incredible results! Forty-one alumni mentors participated, offering support and encouragement to more than 170 freshmen engineers. We were excited to welcome mentors from all across the country, and breakout rooms delivered small-group interaction to help students create meaningful connections with their mentors.
