If you’re excited about something, you like to share your excitement. When you can apply what you know to help someone else succeed, it’s the best feeling.


Go to the Head of the Class

You come to college to learn, but you’ve got a lot to share, too. Maybe you’re a genius at math, an excellent public speaker, or really well organized. At the Dietrich School, you can put your knowledge and listening skills to work as a tutor, mentor, advisor, or teaching assistant. Why wait until grad school when you can pick up valuable experience—and academic credit—as early as your sophomore year?
