Mentorship Program 2017

Viterbi Graduate Mentorship Program

The Viterbi Graduate Mentorship Program is designed to help new Viterbi graduate students adjust smoothly to life at USC and Los Angeles. Participating new students (mentees) will be paired up with current Viterbi graduate students (mentors). Mentees and mentors are mostly paired up in the same academic department and at the same degree level. We host various events throughout the year exclusively for mentors and mentees. Please see the sections below for more information and sign up to part of this program.


“Experience sharing is enriching.”
“My mentor has been one of my biggest support systems over here.”
