C.A.T.S.- Culver-Stockton Alumni Transitioning Students
Mentoring Program
The mission of the Professional C.A.T.S. (Culver-Stockton Alumni Transitioning Students) Mentoring Program is to pair students and recent graduates with business professionals who will contribute to their career success through personal relationships.
New this year, the mentorship program is one of the most rewarding ways C-SC alumni can get involved.  We are currently taking applications for involvement in the program. Partnerships will be assigned by Dec. 1, 2013 and for the first semester of the program we will limit partnerships in order to monitor the program closely.  If you are interested in being a mentor or mentee, check out more on our website or e-mail Jennifer Sousa at
