Sign Up for the Engineering Mentorship Program!

The RESS is happy to announce that the mentorship program will continue again for the 2015-2016 year.  However, we cannot have a mentorship program without our dedicated mentors and protégés.  This is where you come in!

Would you like to help an inexperienced student get through their early years by offering advice and sharing your wisdom? Or would you like to leach upon the helpful knowledge of an experienced engineering student?  If you answered yes to either of these questions, visit the link below to sign-up for the mentorship program as a mentor or protégé.

Mentorship 2015/2016 Sign-Up Form

Keep in mind that mentorship does not equal tutoring.  The purpose of mentorship is meant to be about guiding new engineering students to a fun and successful student life.

Contact Nick LaPlante, services@uofrengineering.com, for more information.

Now WESST wants a new, fun logo. The official logo is currently this:

WESST logo
