The purpose for the Oglethorpe University Petrel-to-Petrel mentor program is to help transition students into the community and to get a chance to ask alumni what to expect after graduation and ways to prepare for life outside of school.
Please choose the section below that best describes you and begin your Petrel mentoring journey!
As an current Oglethorpe student, you have the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of getting in touch with OU alumni for mentoring and networking benefits. Please click here to fill out a mentee form, and we will get you in contact with an alumnus that matches your interests.
Please allow 7 days for us to get you connected with the best possible alumni mentor. We will then send the mentor information to you and it will be up to you to contact the mentor. Please note that their schedules are busy and it may take a few days for them to respond to your e-mail. If you have not heard from them within 2 weeks of your submission, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are an alumni member needing help with your career, we encourage you to see what resources we have available at http://www.alumni.oglethorpe.edu/career!
The OU Office of Alumni Relations consistently calls upon professionals to connect with students as they navigate through their college experience and alumni members as they try and find new careers. If you are a graduate of Oglethorpe University, you are in a unique position to help with this process. Who better to offer feedback, support, and guidance than a fellow Petrel!
Being a Career Volunteer can take on many forms. You control the time you wish to volunteer and how you spend it. Some of the opportunities available can be accomplished by phone, email or Skype. Others are best accomplished in person, particularly campus-based events. A large need is for alums to begin a mentor/mentee relationship with a current OU student helping to answer questions related to majors, leadership opportunities, athletics, volunteerism, and post-graduation opportunities.
