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. Our Academic Development Chair, Riya Sanghvi 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 to see everyone becoming friends and talking to each other because Riya had worked tirelessly hard to pair everyone up together. Riya says she had a great time seeing the older students giving advice to the incoming students about classes and events on campus.
