University-wide Grad Mentor
Incoming graduate students are paired with a returning graduate student that is invested in their success — a person ready to listen, inspire, help navigate challenges, and recognize opportunities. Students will learn what to expect in graduate school, how to approach challenges and gain career advice. At the same time, mentors will build their networks and develop skills to become better professionals and leaders. Check out the CSULB Graduate Center for more information.
