ALAC Mentors Supporting Student Athletes

This workshop will introduce graduate students who are mentors & tutors to help first and second year athletes. Offering experience in a wide range of fields, our tutors are excited to guide students along the complicated road of being a student athlete at RPI. Each tutor draws experience from their courses and also from their lives as RPI athletes to offer wisdom to younger peers. This program offers expertise in core classes such as calculus, physics, or IEA, and also addresses topics of time management and classes specific to many STEM majors. Come learn about the graduate students' journey as RPI athletes to their graduate studies and the advice and support that these students offer to our athletic community.
