Engineering Students and Mentors Build Rewarding Relationships

On the evening of September 13, 2006, over 45 Poly students were

dinner, sponsored by SAME and Polytechnic Career Services, provides an
opportunity for first and second year students to meet mentors and
learn how mentoring can provide them with support, guidance and
information to enhance their education and professional development.
