All participants in Emerging Leaders will be assigned an upperclassmen mentor for their first semester. The mentors will be there to help answer questions about life at Georgia State University. They will share the student perspective about classes, professors and campus life. When Emerging Leaders participants have questions they do not want to ask professors, they can ask their mentors for the answers. If the mentors don’t have the answers, they probably know someone who can provide the answer. While mentors will be there throughout the semester to answer texts or emails, they will also take the time each month to sit down and discuss participants’ progress at Georgia State.
