Mentorship 2019 is coming!

Posted on Nov 27th, 2018 by Sean Schumacher

Anxious about the Sophomore Portfolio Review? Want to connect with your classmates and make your work the best it can be? The PSUGD Mentorship program is coming soon to help!

Sign ups for both mentors and mentees will kick off early in Winter term 2019. Watch for posters throughout the Art Building and Annex beginning in January. Whether you’re prepping for review or already through it, it’s a great chance to grow your work and community at once.


Looking to get an early start on your SPR prep over the break? Check out the Sophomore Portfolio Review page at psu.gd/sophomore-portfolio-review for the basics. There, we have a great review guide that was used last year and it’s a great place to start to review the Review. It’s filled with tips, a calendar, the rubric and other helpful tools to guide you through this process while you are waiting for the 2019 guide to arrive!

Mentorship KICK OFF PIZZA PARTY!

Posted on Jan 28th, 2018 by Kate Bingaman-Burt

Meet your Mentor/Mentee! 

For those of you who signed up to participate in the Mentorship program, we have matched you up with a Mentor or Mentee. With the Sophomore Portfolio Review now on the horizon, let’s kick off our new friendships by eating pizza, talking strategy, and breaking the ice.

It’s also O-K if your Mentor/Mentee can’t make it— come hang out anyway! There will be lots of useful information that you can share with them later, and plenty of sweet people to hang out with.

Forgot to sign up for Mentorship? It’s not too late! Please fill out the form to be a Mentor here: tinyurl.com/psumentorship or fill out the form to be a Mentee here: tinyurl.com/menteetime. OR join us at Thursday’s event, and we can help you get signed up.

The Mentorship program was created to pair Sophomores with a Junior or Senior to support them through the Sophomore Portfolio Review that happens in the Spring. A Mentor can be an extra set of eyes, a cheerleader in the crowd, and just someone to relate to who can honestly say, “I’ve been there.” Anyone in the PSU.GD program can participate. Sign up for Mentorship today!

Please RSVP so we know a good number for getting PIZZA 🙂
