This was the official welcome meeting after the Mentor/Mentee Reveal, so it was a very fun and exciting atmosphere. The room was crowded with eager faces, ready to meet their future friend that will guide them on their college journey. I presented a PowerPoint on the the guidelines of the program and then updated the students on ongoing academic events and open research positions. After a quick briefing, the mentors and mentees met up with each other and mingled. It was really heartwarming for me to see everyone becoming friends and talking to each other because I worked hard to pair everyone up together. I had a great time seeing the older students giving advice to the incoming students about classes and events on campus.
