Becoming a mentor was what I looked forward to all last year. When we picked our mentees last spring, I was ecstatic. I made an elaborate video to reveal myself to John as his mentor and then went to his high school to surprise him and take him out to coffee and lunch.

COM 467 is another class that I took for my leadership minor. COM was a class that I soon learned to look forward to. Professor Carlson had everyone's name memorized by the end of the first class which made me realize that this was going to be a very interactive class.

The topics … Continue reading PHL 118L: Moral Problems
Woah, it's the end of my freshmen year. Woah, I just got a mentee. As I have discussed before, through LAS I received a mentor, Derek. But now it is my turn to get an incoming freshmen as my mentee.
