Be a Mentor

Sharing your knowledge and expertise doesn’t just benefit new and future Cougs – it gives you a chance to learn, too. Mentoring lets you help your fellow Cougs get comfortable at WSU, make connections, learn the ropes of college life, and thrive at WSU. 

As a mentor, you’ll get the satisfaction of helping someone else succeed while also making friends, building your leadership skills, and adding valuable experience to your resume.
