**What you'll do**:
As a Student Mentor, you'll set your schedule, select the types
of things you can speak to (e.g. general experience, transferring,
social life, dorm life, specific majors, clubs, or activities), and
get matched to hold video chats/tours with prospective students who
want to learn about YOUR experience.
**Why it matters:**
Did you know 37% of students transfer at least once? And ~40% of
students drop out? Poor social fit is cited as one of the top 3
biggest reasons for these - help prospective students understand
what its really like on your schools campus!
- Create your profile to highlight specific areas/interests that
you can speak to prospective students about (e.g. your current
major, student government, dorm life, greek life, athletics). - Set
your calendar and keep it up to date so prospective students can
find times that you are available to share your experiences with
them! - Accept requests from prospective students to hop on an
audio/video call to answer questions they have about your
experience at college. For those that don't have specific
questions, we will provide some common "informational chat"
questions that help prospective students get a better picture of
what college is really like!
**Skills you'll learn:**
- "Your pitch" - Refine the way that you introduce yourself and
share your experiences (great practice for how to pitch yourself in
future job interviews) - we provide some great resources that can
help if you want to use them! - Presentation skills - Learn to lead
a Q&A and highlight exciting characteristics about your school
and its culture - Leadership - Become a campus leader and help
