Find a UGA Mentor

Networking with experienced UGA alumni, faculty and staff can help you get ahead in life and career, but where do you even start? The UGA Mentor Program narrows down the world of possibilities to meaningful connections. It personalizes the networking experience; connecting you with mentors that are just right for your commitment.

It has definitely been amazing having someone in my corner to help me through the uncertainties and keep me motivated! I truly enjoyed the experience and the impact it has made on my first year in college. I value the life-long connection I have made with my mentor.
