Mentors

CSULB Alumni strives to provide valuable mentoring opportunities for students and alumni. We work to match recent graduates and current students with seasoned alumni in their desired field. This gives students the chance to get an expert’s advice and insight on educational and career options, best networking practices, and goal-setting.

We encourage all students to take advantage of this free resource. There's no substitute for experience, and we have alumni from all colleges and career paths ready to answer your questions about academics, your field and everything inbetween.
