If you need guidance, it is good to seek advice from someone you trust and that has a similar background as you. It is especially true for freshmen at University of Tennessee’s College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, where there is a helpful mentorship program for incoming minority students.

This includes this summertime introduction called The Bridge and also the STEAM program, an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Agriculture and Mathematics. This program is a collaboration between University of Tennessee’s Institute of Agriculture, the College of Engineering and the Tennessee Louis Stokes Alliance for minority participation.

The idea is that older students learn what it is to be a mentor, and younger ones get needed guidance on success in college. According to Charles Denney, the students who were helped this year are about to become future mentors. The mentor program helps students find their niche on a campus that may have a much bigger population than their hometown.
