Become a TME Mentor

TME Mentors are current UConn students from the various majors at the University. They use their own experiences to give other students a taste of what it's like to be in their program of study. Think about it....if you're interested in sociology and want to know what it's like to be a sociology major, who better to contact than a current sociology student? A TME Mentor's main responsibility involves fielding questions through the TME website from other students who are interested in their major. Click here to see how this works.
