(2) Sign Up for the SIPLA Mentorship Program!

SIPLA is very happy to be continuing its mentorship program. The program matches upperclassmen with new students, and mentors are another great resource for new students to informally get information about how to flourish both at school and with job prospects.

We’re already hard at work matching up everyone who signed up for the program, and you will likely be hearing soon about whom you’ve been paired with. But it’s not too late to request a mentor. Anyone interested in signing up to be a mentee, fill out the form here.

Upperclassmen – the mentorship program is nothing without its great mentors. If you have yet to sign up to be a mentor, fill out the form here.

Questions? Reach out to our Mentoring Chair, Ashley Cade.

(3) Fall Meet & Greet: Elephant & Castle Happy Hour

SIPLA will be hosting it’s fall meet and greet Tuesday, Sept. 20 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at Elephant & Castle (900 19th St NW). The meet and greet is a great place for mentors and mentees to meet each other as well as for all SIPLA members to get to know each other and some of the IP faculty members.

Please note that the time and date of the event has been changed since the previous newsletter.

Alcohol will be available via a ticket system for individuals over the age of 21 with a valid, government-issued ID.
