Engaging with a mentor

Mentorship is fundamental in the success of students. When engaging with a mentor, always be respectful of the mentor's time. Mentors volunteer themselves to help others out of their own time. Do not be rude or harass a mentor. If a mentor is unable to help you, then politely thank them for their time and reach out to another mentor who may be able to help you.
