Why did you decide to be a First Connection Mentor?

I was a first connection mentee, which is why I couldn’t imagine what route my life on campus would’ve looked like without the experience. I established great friendships, a great community environment, and a sense of belonging on campus. Which is why I decided to be a mentor to form many more memories and bonds.
