Build Relationships that Matter

Of all the resources at our disposal, time is the most finite—and, as a result, our most valuable.

For students planning for a successful future, using that resource effectively means connecting with mentors who were once where you are right now and who have a lifetime of wisdom and guidance to share.

For mentors, using your time to foster those relationships with students who need it most will pay dividends for everyone involved. And no matter how much time you have to give, you can make a huge impact on the lives of others.

Ashland University’s GUIDE Network brings mentors and students together. Mentors are able to partner with students to offer experience, wisdom and hard-earned knowledge that will set them up for success.

Just as our mentors were inspired by those who took the time to engage with them earlier in life, this program allows mentors to connect with the next generation of Eagles and invest in their future. And for students, this program offers a unique opportunity to grow both personally and professionally and prepare for the world beyond campus borders.
