Student Opportunities

Student opportunities foster integration into university life by contributing to the intellectual, personal and social development of undergraduate and graduate experiences. Additionally, our student opportunities provide deeper distinction and value to the overall student experience by offering students more occasions to learn about their fields of interest, gain leadership and professional skills, and build a community outside the classroom.

Business Mentoring Program

The Business Mentoring Program connects students to successful College of Business alumni and friends. Students and mentors interact under this structured program for one semester, during which they communicate at least once a week. Mentors provide encouragement and insight on career development, personal growth and challenges in the workplace.

This program is offered in the fall and spring, with student applications being accepted through the first two weeks of each semester.
