The Center for Engagement and Opportunity and the New College Alumnae/i Association are proud to announce the creation of our new NovoNetwork mentoring program. The NovoNetwork is your chance to connect with current New College students and help them get the most out of their New College experience. There are a variety of ways that you can become involved in the NovoNetwork, and we hope that one of them will fit your schedule.

The cornerstone of the NovoNetwork is our 1-on-1 mentoring program. As a mentor you will be invaluable in helping students set smart and realistic goals for their academic and professional lives.

Your guidance will also help them overcome obstacles they may encounter along the way. As a mentor you and your student will meet throughout the semester (minimum of once every two weeks) to discuss the student’s goals and their progress. Meetings can take place face to face, through video conferencing, or phone, allowing anyone anywhere the opportunity to be a NovoNetwork mentor.

We need mentors from all different backgrounds, interests, and locations. If you would like to make a positive impact on a New College students life and career please consider being a 1-on-1 mentor.

In addition to 1 on 1 mentoring you can also be involved in the NovoNetwork through Career Resource Connections, participating in CEO programming, or attending a NCAA Chapter / Networking event.

  • Career Resource Connections help students explore various career fields by answering student questions and providing the opportunity for students to shadow when appropriate.
  • CEO programming will highlight a variety of careers and skills necessary for success.
  • Chapter and networking events will be casual opportunities for students to meet alums in a more relaxed environment and allow them to start building their own professional network.

These options are less time intensive than 1-on-1 mentoring but still allow you to share your knowledge and expertise with students.
