SASE Rensselaer Mentor Program
The mentor program, run by the Rensselaer chapter of SASE,
aims to provide academic and professional support for all students, especially freshmen, who are studying at RPI, regardless of ethnicity.
The mentor-mentee relationships formed within the program adhere to the principles of SASE, ensuring that mentees can achieve their full potential with the help of their mentors.
Our mentor population is a mix of RPI students who are co-term, seniors, juniors, and sophomores. Although we have more mentors whose majors are in engineering, many of the mentors in our program have a solid foundation of the sciences and humanities that complement their engineering expertise.
This year, the program received over 100 newly accepted freshmen who were interested in becoming mentees. These students span various majors and fields, each with their own distinct backgrounds. Some of the mentees, through their mentors' recommendations, have taken further steps in expressing their interest in the SASE community by taking on executive positions as committee members and freshmen representative.
The SASE Rensselaer Mentors aim to provide academic and professional support targeted towards freshmen who are studying at RPI. The relationships formed by the mentors and mentees ensure that mentees can achieve their full potential with the help of their mentors.
