EORO Impact: Amber Griffith

Being a EORO mentee made me feel like I was in the loop for all the social events around campus. I never had a boring weekend because my mentor kept me up to date on what was happening around campus.

EORO Impact: Jonathan C. Harris

EORO mentors serve as great helpers/resources to make you feel acclimated in no time. My EORO mentor gave me the support and help I needed to become involved in activities. With his support, I am now an Ambassador for the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, a Resident Assistant, and a new EORO Mentor myself.

EORO Impact: Petra Palmer

For me, EORO was the program that helped me break out of my shell. I was very shy and introverted when I started college; however, being involved in EORO as a Mentee and a Coordinator helped me open up and get to know people.

EORO Impact: Markus Johnson

EORO played an intricate part of my development as a minority student at UD. As a freshman, my mentor introduced me to the different social groups on campus. As an upperclassman, I became a mentor and later a mentor coordinator. Through the leadership training and retreats, I helped to guide many young leaders, which in turn, assisted in my growth as a student leader, by laying the foundation for my career. This program is very necessary and full of great experiences.
