“The Mentor” statue
The OMWC currently has two staff mentors who meet with each scholar on a weekly basis. In addition, scholars are paired with a peer mentor their freshman year. Then beginning with their sophomore year, they are paired with a Career and a Life Mentor. The Life Mentor is usually selected from the OMWC members and the Career Mentor is selected based on the scholar’s major. These committed individuals regularly communicate with their “mentee” and guide them in their future career, help with life skills, and network with alumni.
