We are working on a new initiative to welcome incoming LCL students this August. In addition to planning happy hours and other networking events during orientation, we’d like to set up a mentoring program which would pair up senior graduate students with new students. We hope this might ease the anxiety of entering a new program, allow new students to ask questions, and allow current graduate student to connect with new colleagues. We hope to build a more cohesive community this way.
Is there anyone interested in participating in the mentoring program? We are still working out the details, and we would love to get feedback from everyone, but particularly from those interested in working with the program. So, forward us your ideas, thoughts, contact info if you’re interested, etc.
