The Alumni Mentoring program in recently kicked off the 2007-2008 mentoring year with a reception hosted by the Career Development Office. The most alumni to date, 52 men and women, have volunteered to advise first year students as they encounter the challenges of how to study for exams, be there to celebrate the joy of receiving the first A in their law school career, advise the mentee on which electives are beneficial to take, and give career advice when needed.
Alumni and students convened on campus to meet their matches, the evening of October 18, 2007. The student-alumni match is a careful process orchestrated by the Career Development Office. 1L’s are paired with an alumna/us based on professional interest, regular or extended division enrollment, and/or geography.
Students enjoyed getting to know their alumni mentors better that evening and were able to see first-hand what truly diverse paths Widener Law alumni take upon graduation.
