Puente mixer event

Puente Mentee/Mentor Mixer a Success

The Puente program hosted its annual Mentee/Mentor Mixer on November 29, where Puente students meet their mentor for the first time. Mentors are Cerritos College employees, and at least have a bachelor’s degree. Mentees and mentors keep in touch and meet up throughout the academic year on topics pertaining to academics, career, personal, and any other matters that may arise. The mentor relationship benefits Puente students, who are under-represented, and many are first generation college students.
