COMPASS Mentee Information
What are the benefits of participating in COMPASS as a mentee?
As mentees, students will be able to…
- Get advice and guidance from a knowledgeable upperclassman also registered with ODS on classes, campus life, academic resources, and more;
- Integrate more effectively into college life, both socially and academically, and feel more secure in their role as a college student with a disability;
- Cultivate a trusting relationship with someone who can provide support, listen, and offer helpful insight on navigating college.
The more time and effort you invest in developing a relationship with your mentor, the more you will get out of participating in the program!
