In 2017, a mentorship program was introduced for the incoming class of graduate students. This provides access to 2 faculty members and 2 senior graduate students as mentors to each incoming student. The mentors are able to guide you on your academic needs and help you get started on your graduate school journey. This can be a great opportunity to receive mentorship and guidance from experienced faculty and students outside (and potentially inside) of your preferred academic field and will go a long way to resolving problems and helping adjust to Long Island and graduate life.
The status of the mentorship program for the 2018-19 school year has not yet been announced.
