Programs for Alums

Center Mentors Program:

Alums and friends of the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University (CSB/SJU) will each visit campus for half-day sessions scheduled throughout the school year.  Students sign up for 30-60 minute visits with the Center Mentors to gather information that will further their work on their entrepreneurial venture or for their own career planning. In addition, student clubs operating fundraising ventures and students that run their own businesses or nonprofits will be encouraged to use these mentors.  Center Mentors will also be available for classroom presentations.  Center staff will provide orientation and support to the Center Mentors and assist the students in finding the right mentor for their questions.
