The Science Student Council (SSC) and ASUA collaborate to host an annual Mentorship Program for students in each module of the Department of Actuarial and Statistical Sciences. The program is designed to assign an upper year Mentor with a first- or second-year Mentee(s) that best matches their program and ability to assist with specific academic or career related inquiries. The Mentorship Program has successfully run for over 5 years and is an excellent opportunity for younger students to obtain advice on required courses, aid for attaining internships, resources for success in a desired field, and much more from an experienced upper year student.
