College is a wonderful time to explore your passions, meet new people, and learn something new. The world is full of possibilities, which is exciting but can be overwhelming. Luckily, we have Meredith Mentors, a program to help guide you through college life and even your career.
The Meredith Alumnae Association and Office of Career Planning created an online mentoring program called Meredith Mentors. To date, there are over 2,000 users on the platform representing 38 states, the District of Columbia, 9 countries, and 43 different industries or career fields.
Here are the top three ways you can benefit from Meredith Mentors.
Meredith has over 90 majors to choose from, so you’re sure to find your niche. But what if you don’t know what major suits you? What is being a student in a particular major like? What are the classes like? What courses should you take? That’s where a mentor steps in.
You’ll be able to connect with graduates who were in the majors you’re interested in and get the answers to your questions. They’ve been in your shoes, and they know first-hand what it’s like to be a student in that major.
At Meredith, getting involved in life outside the classroom is just as important as studying hard. Expanding your horizons helps make you stronger and opens a whole world of opportunities. As a Meredith student, there are many student life opportunities available to you, including:
