How to Start
At the beginning of the semester, the college minister will arrange a first meeting with your student. After that, it's up to you to proactively schedule time to spend together. Your student is already excited about having a mentor, so don't be hesitant or nervous to reach out. Shoot them a text and invite them out for coffee, lunch or even to hang out at your house sometime. If they're slow to respond or don't respond at all, don't take it personally! Some students are horrible at communicating and need to be bugged a few times :-)
The more time you can spend together, the quicker your relationship will develop. We ask that you get together ONCE A MONTH, but feel free to hang out as often and however you want. And you're always welcome to come to UCM events - Monday Launch 6pm each week, retreats or fun stuff on the weekends.
