In a Dynamic Duo article, Ethan Granger, student, and Tammy Welchert, faculty, reflect on the importance of mentoring. “It’s been interesting, because Ethan’s and my relationship is something that a lot of students miss,” Welchert says. “I have heard before that students feel as if they're missing these kinds of close connections... It's on you to foster that connection and make something of that,” said Granger. Welchert agrees that faculty is open to forming mentoring relationships. “Our faculty will tell you that the most underutilized time that they have is office hours,” she says. “
