There’s still time for a VSAMP Mentor! (Deadline extended to 4/27)

Apply now to participate in the Viterbi Student-Alumni Mentoring Program (VSAMP) during the 2018-2019 academic year!  Students in the program are matched with VSAMP mentors who provide guidance and support to help students feel more confident about their academic/career pursuits. VSAMP is open to current freshmen and sophomores. (All Viterbi Majors Eligible)

Hear what a current VSAMP student experienced this year:

“As someone who is attempting to enter engineering industry, I enjoyed having someone to talk to and give me advice. Having a mentor to bounce ideas off of was very helpful in learning how to network, make the most out of career fairs, and prepare for interviews. From my mentor I feel that I have become more confident in how to conduct myself professionally and have gained a valuable person in my life from which I can seek guidance on professional matters.”

-Current VSAMP Sophomore (ME major)
