Thanks to the success of the RCEL industry Mentorship Program, the RCEL Student Mentorship Committee has developed a new RCEL Peer 2 Peer Mentorship Program with the goal of connecting freshman and sophomore engineering students interested in RCEL with current juniors and seniors Certificate students.


“The driving force behind this is that as freshman and sophomores are trying to figure out their time here at Rice, the choices they make early on affect their future,” said Constantine Tzouanas, a junior bioengineering major and part of RCEL’s mentorship committee. “With the Peer 2 Peer Mentor Program, we can pair underclassman in the major with upperclassman to help them make those fundamental decisions, not only about why one course may be a better option than another, but also about extracurricular activities and majors, as well as internships or research.”
