Mentoring through personalized text messaging can:

  1. give you someone to connect with,
  2. help you feel a part of Oregon Tech,
  3. help you to know someone is there if you need anything,
  4. and help you to know someone is rooting for you to do well!

Every question is a good one, so ask us!

What our students are saying:

"I love this program! I think every college should do this! It makes a new student feel connected from the very beginning!" ~Karen W.
"I want to thank you for being there for me this term. Even though we haven’t ‘met’ I am so glad I had someone to talk to through the craziness this term." ~Fawn G.
