This mentoring system was started last year for members within SWE to learn more about how to be more involved and succeed in SWE and how to obtain and maintain leadership roles within SWE. Mentees, which include freshmen, sophomores, and anyone else interested in becoming more involved, will be paired up with a mentor, such as a juniors or senior who has been active in SWE, served as an officer, and / or has been on the Exec Board.
