“UConn provided me a number of great opportunities both while I was a student and after I graduated, and I owe a lot the experiences I had there and to the Professors and Administrators who were always very supportive. Being a UConn mentor is a great way to give back to the school. It also is a great opportunity to help students who are in the same position I was once in.”
