"[She] was an amazing mentor. She did so much to accommodate everyone in the group and always tried to get all of us together for group activities. I couldn't have asked for a better mentor."

"Great leader. Really great experience that I am glad that I participated in. [She] has inspired me to be a mentor in the future!"

"She rocked! By far the best mentor I have had thus far at Tech. She really helped me get all my school work straight."

"[He] was incredibly helpful with my transition to the Virginia Tech engineering program. He gave me tons of valuable information regarding engineering and my future here at Tech. I looked to him for advice and guidance many times over the duration of the program. (He) was a great Team Leader!"

"[She] was and still is a great mentor. She came to campus on extremely short notice with resources to help me prepare for an interview. Without her I would never had done so well. She also offered me a ride home outside of the group. I feel I can contact her anytime to this day and she would be more than happy to help."
