Advice from Mentors:

Starting a semester is never easy but hopefully with this advice, you'll be able to make the most of it! 

· Be sure to look over each syllabus for every class you have. Mark down important dates such as exams and homework assignments so you don't forget them!

· Visit your professor's office hours. It's always a good idea to get to know your professors in order to develop relationships with them. 

· Remember that your mentors are always available to answer any and all questions you may have! 

· Get involved! A new semester provides a great opportunity to join clubs you may have not considered last semester. Organizations are a great way to increase your professional development and make relationships with people with similar interests. 

· Visit the Business Career Center in 114 Business. It is never too early to get a jump start on the job search process. This office has many resources such as advice on 30 second pitches, resume reviews, and more!
