All School of Earth and Space Exploration majors have a Faculty Mentoring Milestone listed as a critical requirement on their Major Map in Terms 2 and 4. The purpose of this requirement is to help you connect with someone working in your field to ask questions about the types of things you can do with your degree after graduation and to get helpful suggestions about the things you should be doing as an undergraduate to work towards meeting those long-term goals.
Your faculty mentor can help you figure out what things you need to do to start preparing for graduate school or finding a job in your chosen field, or they may be able to help you pinpoint the different types of things you can do with your specific degree. It’s an awesome benefit that allows you to connect with the School of Earth and Space Exploration in a different way and find opportunities that you otherwise may not know about. Take advantage of it!
- It is your responsibility to email your mentor to request a meeting. Don’t wait until the last week of the semester to do this - professors are busy at the end of the semester just like students.
- Make sure to use your ASU email address with the @asu.edu extension when emailing faculty so they recognize you are affiliated with the university. Your email is also much less likely to end up in their junk folder using your @asu.edu email.
