Mentor Mindset

Unlike other Heavener Sponsored Programs or student organizations, the main development and heart of the program occurs as a mentor and mentee pair outside of structured meetings, trainings, and events. Therefore, it is important to be able to effectively manage your time and make your BUMP mentee a priority.

  • Meet with your mentee approx. once per week.
  • The more you put into this experience, the more you will benefit, learn, and help your mentee grow.

Mandatory Events

Most meetings are held from 6:00-7:30 PM on Thursdays, unless otherwise noted.

  • TBD: Mentor Orientation
  • TBD: Retreat
  • TBD: Mentor Mid-Semester Meet-Up
  • TBD: Mentor Think Tank
  • TBD: Semester Awards and Wrap-Up
