Mentee Spotlight

Christian Quiles

With fullCIRCLE, I was given the chance to have a mentor who really introduced me to the University's campus. I was able to build a strong relationship with my mentor, which allowed me to have someone to talk to if I had any questions or just needed to talk. I have definitely become more involved on campus and I now have a great connection with the Office of Multicultural Affairs and their staff.
