Meet the Adawe Mentors

At the Adawe Center, Adawe Mentors help students navigate their OUAZ Surprise journey by Listening, Asking, Guiding, & Empowering. Every undergraduate student is assigned an Adawe Mentor when they first enroll at OUAZ Surprise.

We’re here to help you figure things out. Whatever challenges, opportunities or obstacles you may face throughout the course of your educational experience, your Adawe Mentor can direct you to the resources, support, challenges and encouragement you need to reach your goals. Part guide, part cheerleader, we are here help smooth the bumps and celebrate the wins that will come with your OUAZ Surprise adventure.

Specifically, we help our students do the following (click to view):

It can be difficult to figure out a new place. We’re here to help.

We can help or refer you to the right people when you have questions like these:

  • How do I register for classes?
  • What is my current GPA?
  • Why did I get an email from the Registrar about class attendance?
  • How do I look at my financial information?
  • What is SAP?
  • I have question about Housing policy. Who do I talk to?
  • How do my PGD credits work?
  • Am I ready to graduate?

Plan: Success = Smart Goals + Hard Work.

Where are you headed and how will you get there?

If we can't help you directly, we'll refer you to the best information or contact for:

  • Planning your Schedule and Assignments
  • Recognizing and Managing stress
  • Developing a Growth Mindset

What will you be doing the week after your OUAZ graduation?

After graduation, you'll launch a career composed of the jobs you hold, the titles you earn, and the work you accomplish throughout your life.

Let's figure out your first post-graduate steps together.

  • LifePlan Narrative
  • Purpose Statement
  • Career/Personality/Assessment Tools
  • Self-branding & Marketing (Resume, Social Media, Etc.)
  • Job-searching (Online, Job Fairs, etc.)
  • Interviewing
  • Networking
  • Internships / Volunteer Work

Connect:  When you just need someone to listen.

You are not alone, and you don’t have to know everything.

OUAZ is a safe place to figure things out.

  • Advice from people who've "been there."
  • Relationship matters
  • Faith exploration
  • Sorting out your thoughts and feelings with someone who won't judge you
  • Developing self-awareness

You are more than your GPA.
