Welcome to the L&S Mentors website!

L&S Mentors are current UC Berkeley graduate students who work with College of Letters & Science undergraduate students in the STEM, humanities, interdisciplinary, and social science fields. 

They offer pre-scheduled mentoring sessions, topic-focused small group discussions called Mentoring Hubs, and help facilitate the UGIS 98: First-Year Experience course.

Join our community group to help address issues of belonging, imposter syndrome, and more. This unique group will be run by the graduate mentors and will meet twice a month for the Fall semester. We will aim to build community, trust, skill sharing, and demystifying the college experience from a minority perspective.

Ask a Mentor About:

How do I manage my workload? How do I talk to my professors and GSIs? How do I handle all readings?
Adjusting to campus life. How can I feel like I belong? Where can I meet students like me? How do I deal with family pressure?
wellness and work. What work makes me happy? How do I balance career goals with other interests? What resources are available on campus?
making the most of your major. How does my major translate into a career? Should I apply to grad school? What do I write in my application essay?
choosing a path. What if I don't like what I'm doing? Can I change my mind? How do I balance my career interests with my passions? I need help choosing a major!
