What are student mentees saying? 

"[The mentors] were all very supportive and they were all very loving and kind. [DiscoverU] was probably one of the best things I have ever done." -Student Mentee

“I’m the oldest so I don’t have an older sibling or someone to talk to. So it’s kinda necessary to talk to them [the mentors]...things you don’t wanna tell your parents but you still need someone to talk to. And since they are like older, and since we are getting older they can like teach us things...The dos and the dont’s.”  -Student Mentee

"This was a 10/10, will try this at home. The people here are nice. I feel like I belong here." -Student Mentee

“I kind of shifted my schedule around to be here both days, just because I enjoyed it so much. I realized that we were doing certain activities on one day…and I didn’t want to miss out. So, I made some adjustments to be here both days and get the full experience.” -Mentor
