Students Guiding StudentsThe official purpose of "Students Guiding Students" is to connect high school students with mentors who are currently attending UT Austin. These connections will be based on both major and hometown location. We aim to guide these high school students by informing them of resources that may not be common knowledge. This knowledge that they gather will aid the students in making more informative decisions whether it be about opportunities available for them as high school students, decisions about their potential major, or decisions about college life in general. Our hope is that these high school students do not only get all of their questions about UT, or college life in general, answered; but also that these high school students will begin to grow roots within the UT community before even setting foot on campus.

We understand Foucault's theory that "knowledge is power," and we want to empower our younger generation by providing them with the knowledge to be confident in their own decisions. In essence, the interested high school student will fill out a questionnaire (google form) with basic information. (i.e. what high school they attend, what future major they intend to apply to). From here we will pair the high school student with a university student who will be able to answer all of their questions to completion.
