Program for Undergraduate Guidance (PUG)

Mentors are paired up with underclassmen or transfer mentees who are in the same major or have similar career goals.  Most mentors and mentees have informal chats.  This program aims to be professional but to also create a friendly relationship between the two students. It has replaced a few of the smaller mentorship programs such as the Dickinson Mentors and other residential life mentor programs.
