If you are passionate about sharing your knowledge and resources with current students and fellow alumni, participating in the Odyssey Mentoring Program is a great way give back and stay connected to the Columbia College community as you provide valuable input that can have a lasting impact on someone else.
Alumni can be both short-term or long-term mentors — or even just connections! — for current students or young alumni who are seeking to grow personally or professionally. You have the potential to offer insight and broader perspectives during key decision-making times in their lives.
Developing a relationship through the Odyssey Mentoring Program can be adopted to fit your work style. It can be an email exchange or an online chat, or sitting down or over a cup of coffee or lunch — and you just start talking.

“Building a friendship with my mentee felt like reconnecting with my 21-year-old self. She had all the same questions and aspirations that I had at that age, and we instantly connected. I helped her land a job at her dream firm and she inspired me to dream like only a 21-year-old can.”
