PIQUA — Edison Community College’s Alumni Association is piloting a new Alumni Mentoring Program for current Edison students. Beginning this fall, the program aims to prepare students for the transition from college to their professional lives; foster student networking opportunities, which can potentially lead to employment; and streamline the change from student status to active alumni association membership.
The College is currently seeking applications from alumni of Edison who are interested in becoming a mentor as well as current students seeking mentorship. Mentor and mentee applications are available online at www.edisonohio.edu/mentoringprogram.
To ensure lasting relationships, pairs will be created based on similarities in career field, major, hometown, hobbies, and interests. Information submitted will be kept on file until applicants are assigned to a pair.
The Edison Community College Alumni Association is committed to creating a modern, global community for its 10,000 plus graduates. The Alumni Association exists to promote the general welfare of the College and its graduates, facilitate lifelong learning opportunities and stimulates lasting means of communication.
Questions regarding the application process or Edison’s Alumni Association can be directed to Carrie Rinehart, coordinator of annual giving and alumni relations, at 778-7993 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
