The Odyssey Mentoring Program is designed to be flexible and to help you mentor, be mentored or even connect informally with others in the Columbia College community. You can use the program to:
CONNECT WITH FELLOW ALUMNI AND/OR FIND A MENTOR
Go to My Home and on the lefthand side click Search.
Search for experienced alumni using a combination of criteria. Try a Field/Industry-based search and add Nearest Major City for a local connection, or a type in a name or company name in a Keyword search to find someone or something specific.
When you’ve found someone whose profile interests you, send a message (tips on next page) or simply click Request as Mentor. The alum will receive an email that you’ve reached out via Odyssey.
MENTOR A CURRENT STUDENT
Once you’ve created a profile, current students might reach out to you for mentoring and general advice or even with a question. They might be drawn to the industry you’re in, skills that your profile highlights or personal factors like your interests, identity or where you live. Being available to answer questions, meet for coffee or mentor are important ways you can help students succeed in their Columbia College journey by helping them connect to a greater community.
NOTE: Alumni cannot search for or reach out to students directly in the program. When a student has reached out you through Odyssey, you’ll receive an email.
