Each semester, SWE’s Mentoring officers create teams of students with similar majors. 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.
Meet the 2019-20 Mentoring Co-Chairs!
Hey! My name is Ritika Shah, and I am a sophomore studying Chemical Engineering and Economics. I have been part of SWE since freshman year and have really enjoyed being involved with the group. I am excited about being an officer this year and hope to plan some fun events as the Mentoring Co-Chair! Any spare time I have, I usually spend watching Netflix, reading or exploring campus (if weather permits)!
Hello! My name is Zoe Zanella and I am the Mentoring Co-Chair. I am a Sophomore studying Biochemistry & Human Development and Family Studies with hopes of attending medical school. You can most likely find me attending SWE events and studying, but I also love shopping on State Street with my roommates. I am so excited for another semester as a SWE officer!
