Formal conclusion of mentor program should not mean the end of working together
Although the official completion of this year's mentor program may be April 21, it doesn't necessarily mean it's the end of learning from each other. After all, this is just the beginning for student mentees preparing for life after Marquette. Consider these discussion topics before the end of the semester.

Be assertive and seek out your own opportunities.
