All first-year female graduate students are paired with another female graduate student. This mentor serves as a resource and guide during through the new student’s first year and beyond at MIT. Mentors are a valuable resource for academic advice in topics such as classes, teaching, cumulative exams, choosing a research group, work/life balance, and even information about fun activities in Boston and Cambridge!
