Each semester, SWE’s Mentoring officers create teams of students. Each mentoring team consists of a mixture of underclassmen and upperclassmen giving students the opportunity to connect with other SWE members in their major and to receive advice about classes, research opportunities, major specific clubs, and more. There is also a 1:1 mentoring program that matches interested underclassman with an upperclassman in order to give them an opportunity to foster a more personal relationship with someone in the same major.
