Navigating college can be hard if students do not have someone to look up to for guidance. That’s why communication majors mentor each other.
Students in Lambda Pi Eta and their faculty advisor
Starting this Spring 2014 semester, senior and juniors in the honor society for communication majors, Lambda Pi Eta, are working with career advisers to give workshops and presentations to first and second-year students in communication. In one sense then, the upper class communication students are mentors to younger students who often struggle with the transition to college and are unsure about the major or career they want to pursue.
“I think that by being able to have seniors as people who they look up to, would give them more guidance. There are so many freshman that don’t have that guidance and they are all over the place, and I think a lot of them have a hard time balancing academic and social life,” said Justin Yamet, a senior communication major and member of Lambda Pi Eta.
