Mentor Testimonials

"Seeing a student smile and greet me by name is enough to make me want to take part in Compass 2 Campus." -Lauren Tucker

"I mentor because it is a great opportunity to learn, gain valuable experience, and give back to the community in a small but significant way." -Jake Bassett 

"I take part in Compass 2 Campus because it is a program that cares about people. From students to mentors. C2C sees potential in everyone and strives to bring it out." -Maggie Butler 

"As I shared with students about my academic success and where I am, they seemed to have an increased understanding of the benefits that can arise from working hard in school." -Dylan Russell

"Compass 2 Campus has helped me learn how to reflect on who I am and how I want to interact with the world around me." -Harper Loveless

How does the program work?

Compass 2 Campus (C2C) has a 3 or 5 credit introductory course students must enroll in to become a mentor. Our 3 credit course is titled C2C 201, and is offered as an elective. The 5 credit course is called C2C 203 and qualifies the General University Requirement (GUR) for BCGM section.

After completion of either of our introductory courses students can enroll in four continuing courses called C2C  202 for credit and continue expanding their experience and learning initiated in the introductory course.  Each of the four continuing courses has its own curriculum.
