Meet Your Mentors

Our Pathfinder mentors from the Multicultural Resource Center (MRC) are excited to meet you and be a part of your college journey from the start! As first-generation college students themselves, they will share their experience and what they've learned. But really, they're here to listen to you and help you with your transition to college.
