Examined Life Mentors

Examined Life Mentors are upper level BIC students who volunteer to assist a small group class of BIC freshman in Examined Life I. the purpose of a mentor is to provide BIC freshman a resource and friend whom they can contact throughout the semester as they adjust to college life. Mentors attend both large and small group to assist the professor and offer different perspectives on the discussions that occur in class. Outside of class, mentors often will grab dinner or coffee with students to get to know them and offer advice. Being an Examined Life Mentor is an excellent way of serving the BIC community while making new friends among the freshman class.
