So you’ve made it to Aggieland, you’re enjoying the college life, but sometimes there’s something missing. Building a life of your own can be a little scary and confusing, often frustrating, and sometimes lonely. Family members may not always understand what you’re going through, but a mentor will. When you need a little guidance or even just a shoulder to lean on, ATMentors are there. 


  • advise students in their area of experience and competence.
  • stay informed about current TAMU services to effectively refer students to sources for problems that are outside the Mentor’s expertise.
  • provide a caring, nonjudgmental ear when a student just needs to talk.
  • provide a smile, a helping hand, and eagerness to serve as stepping stones instead of stumbling blocks.

(The ATMentors program does not attempt to replace or substitute the programs provided by departmental advisers, the Student Counseling Service, and the many other valuable student services available at TAMU.  Mentors work hand-in-hand with all of these services, in an effort to provide students with a safe, encouraging environment.)

For more information and to get started, please visit  Request a mentor by emailing or calling 979.845.5826 to make your interest known. A list of ATMentors in the College of Engineering is available on the ATMentors web site (
