Who is a mentee?

A first-year student, whether a freshman or a transfer student.

How does the program work?

Once we receive your Mentee Fact Sheet, we pair you up with a mentor based on common interests and characteristics.  Your mentor will be your guide and resource for the whole year! Think of your mentor and METAS as a personalized support system and family here at UConn.

Throughout the year, we host numerous events focused on academic, professional, social, and emotional support. Some events planned in the past include: Game Night, Movie Night, Panel Discussions on current events and academic paths, FAFSA Workshop with the Office of Student Financial Aid Services, Resume Workshop with the Center for Career Development, and much more.
