The Harrisburg Student Bar Association
hosted its first Mentor-Mentee Night on Thursday, September 15 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. The event took place at Mulligan’s in downtown Harrisburg with over 75 in attendance.
The Mentor-Mentee program – designed to help first-year students adjust to law school by pairing them up with a second or third year student – has over 155 participants this year. Mentors are asked to meet with the first year students several times throughout the semester to provide them with tips for surviving their first year of law school.
Many of the students have found the program to be helpful thus far. Third year law student Maria Anastasopolos said, “It is really important for first years to have someone to relate to aside from professors. We know what they’re going through and therefore the program is really helpful.”
Student Bar Association President Nicole Radziewicz said, “The night was a great success. We had a significant turnout, and the students really enjoyed getting to know each other. This was the first Mentor/Mentee networking event that the SBA has organized, and we look forward to planning similar events throughout the school year.”
