This year’s Mentorship Program was a huge success! Monday, September 30th, a total of 67 mentees and mentors joined WICS and started the quarter off with the introduction of new WICS officers, future events and goals for this year.
Mentees got a chance to network with experienced upperclassmen, receive advice, and choose their mentor. WICS will be checking up with the paired mentors and mentees to make sure the connection will keep going for the rest of the year!
Wednesday, June 5th, WICS hosted their annual ICS Banquet with Debra J. Richardson (WICS club advisor) and all the ICS club (ACM, MAISS, IEEE, VGDC, ICSSC, and DATSpace) officers (old and new) to celebrate the end of a successful school year.
A delicious dinner was provided as the officers socialized and introduced themselves through slideshow presentations. Group photos were taken in the end as graduating officers congratulated newly appointed officers to get ready for another great year!
We had a fantastic turnout for our Mentorship Program. We printed out 35 mentee mixer sheets and we ran out! We had a mixer and ‘speeddating’ event so our mentors and mentees could get acquainted and find out who they best got along with. We’re looking forward to hearing more how our mentors and mentees are doing later in the quarter!
