What impact has mentoring had on your experience?
I enjoy it. When I was a freshman I was excited, but I remember feeling clueless about a lot of things and was scared to ask for help. Having people I can mentor who are in the situation I was in when I was a freshman makes me feel good that I can use my experiences to help them out.
