Bulldog Mentor Program
Each fall and spring semester, the Bulldog Mentor Program connects student mentees with dedicated alumni mentors for individualized mentorship experiences via the Bulldog Network, a professional networking platform exclusive to Mississippi State University. The Bulldog Mentor Program fosters meaningful connections and relationships within the MSU community while equipping students with the tools and confidence to fully unleash their potential. Throughout the program, students gain insights that go far beyond the classroom while receiving valuable career advice, learning about industries, exploring potential career paths, and expanding their collegiate and professional networks.
