Student-Alumni Mentoring (SAM) Program

Sponsored by the Brenau University Alumni Association, the Student-Alumni Mentoring (SAM) program provides an opportunity for current undergraduate juniors and seniors to connect with alumni in a positive and professional way. These one-on-one mentoring relationships help ease the transition from college student to real world professional. Alumni mentors serve student mentees as guides, friends and lifetime resources. 

The SAM program matches students at all campuses with alumni or graduate students working in a similar fields of study, with similar interests and with similar backgrounds. Students will feel comfortable asking their mentors questions about job skills, networking, continuing education, workplace etiquette, goal setting, career building and more. The program runs each semester. Formal relationships can be forged for as little as one 10-week session up to the maximum of four 10-week sessions.

For more information, download the SAM program brochure or contact Kirsty Smith, program coordinator, at or (770) 531-3122.
