“When you’re in a classroom setting, it can be hard to imagine what the working world is all about. The mentorship program provided the opportunity to learn about a variety of possible career paths and ultimately find the best path that fit my interests. The experience I had with both of my mentors helped me become more self-aware, find an organization that aligned with my values and fully understand the importance of relationships and building my network. My mentors were integral in helping me become the best version of myself.”

“I was in between majors and I wasn’t sure what I was passionate about. The co-op program allowed me to explore my options and helped me solidify my choice. My biggest takeaway from my co-op terms was realizing what areas of focus were not a fit with my interests and skills. This helped me figure out what I was passionate about and allowed me to better tailor my remaining courses. My advice for incoming co-op students would be to have an open mind; go in with a positive outlook and be open to being challenged.”
