What is the WaMPS Mentoring Program?

Women and Minorities in the Physical Sciences has strived to create a program which fosters collaboration and professional growth in a laid back, relaxed atmosphere. Our mentors are experienced grad students who have all been in your shoes. We know your stresses, we feel your pain, we celebrate your success.

We are willing to talk about anything you'd like to discuss, but some common topics are:

One thing we unfortunately can't offer is homework help. That being said, if you're struggling with your coursework, we'd be happy to share some studying tips, help you get in touch with your instructors, or find a tutor.

Who can join?

The program is open to all MSU undergraduates, though it would be especially helpful for students who are either currently majoring in physics or are considering it. We're happy to talk to anyone, but since we are in the physics department, physics is the field we know the most about.

What do you?

If you join our program, we'll match you to a mentor based on common research interests and hobbies. You and your mentor will meet once per month during the fall and spring semesters (excluding finals weeks). Meetings generally last 30 minutes to 1 hour, and we even provide free food and drinks! You will also be invited to a few annual group events, like barbecues, picnics, and parties.
