L&S Mentors help students reach their college goals, whether that means adjusting to UC Berkeley. All L&S students are welcome.
My advice to students in the program is to attend as many workshops as you can, even if you do not think the topic is relevant to you. You never know what interesting information you may receive!
The L&S Mentoring program really helped me because they were so accessible and understanding. They reminded me that adjusting takes time, which was very reassuring, and they helped me a lot with some new study tips and time management habits that I feel will help me in my academics.
Talking with the mentors gave me a better sense of how to explore career options and navigate through different paths to reach my goals.
I learned that I have someone that I can depend on when I am struggling on any aspect of my academic career.
