Mentorship has been a part of the human experience for thousands of years. Alexander the Great had Aristotle, Dante had Virgil and the students at New College have their alumni.
“Successful students are the ones who acknowledge that learning takes place outside the classroom as well,” said Professor Yves Roberge, principal of New College. “They see the need to increase their opportunities through volunteering and internships, and this [mentorship], I think, is part of the same reasoning.”
