Our students need you!
Remember what it was like starting on the great adventure – college -- at Cleveland State University? If you were lucky, you had a mentor or someone who could give you advice on what to expect, answer questions about navigating an urban campus, and help you succeed.
Many of our students are first-generation college students. Close to 40 percent are the first in their families to attend college. We would like to make those first steps to attaining a college degree a little easier by creating an outreach program that will be a resource for incoming first-generation freshmen.
And we are looking for alumni who were first-generation college students to help. Are you willing to:
Give advice on what to expect at CSU?
Answer questions from students about what you did to get where you are today?
Speak as part of a panel to first-generation students?
Act as a resource for career advice?
Possibly develop a long-term mentoring relationship with a student?
If so, please contact John McCreery at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to your input and participation in helping us launch this new program!
