Moreover, partnering in the Mentorship Mixer will be required to eventually participate in the CORPORATE MENTORSHIP program (details TBA).

    If you are interested in becoming a MENTEE, this is a great chance for you to connect with the officers, and also learn more about the actuarial field! Please sign up here: Mentee sign up This mentorship program is mainly for 1st year, 2nd year and 1st year transfer students, but everyone is welcome to join the event!

    If you are interested in becoming a MENTOR (Seniors only), this is certainly a great highlight that you can put on your resume! Please sign up here: Mentor sign up

    ************************** VERY IMPORTANT INFO BELOW **************************

    During the Mixer: Each officer will give a brief introduction of who they are and what they can offer as a mentor. And each member, who wants to become a mentee, will get 30sec -1min to talk to each officer, and then will get the chance to choose your top three!

    After the Mixer: We will match you up with a mentor, either an officer or an experienced senior! Have fun!

    Again, please remember that once you sign up, we definitely expect you to show up unless you have an emergency.

    Looking forward to meeting you all! Have a great day!
