Welcome Incoming Freshman to the Marshall College of Business!

What is the Student-Faculty Mentor Program? The Student-Faculty program was developed to service all incoming College of Business students. We do not see many of you in our classes until Sophmore or Junior year. We would like to get to know you earlier so that we can help make sure you are on the right track to success in school and beyond!

Who are We? Faculty mentors are College of Business faculty members who are interested in helping you succeed! Mentors come from each division of the College and have the answers to many of your questions about studying, careers, internships, and will help you become the best professional you can be!

How Does it Work? To be involved all you have to do is come to the events listed below. You are not assigned a faculty mentor, but will have a chance through these events to get to know us and make some connections. You can also get to know other College of Business students who may be taking similar classes. All the events involve food and some fun activities with prizes. There will even be a grand prize at the end of the semester, and your chances of winning are better the more events you attend. Outside of the events, you are encouraged to contact any of us if you have questions, or need any advice/help (see list of the faculty-mentors below).
