Student Testimonials for BUAD 3300
When I began my very first semester at UCCS I found myself to be one of the very first students to participate in the R.O.A.R. program. If I am being honest, I felt that the first semester of of the program was tedious and time consuming. I had a full schedule and on top of that I am a wife and mother. The fact that I was having to take this "useless" course was a little annoying. However, as my semester progressed so did my confidence in the R.O.A.R. experience. Things began to click. I realized that I had to do the small tedious work in the beginning to be able to find the career pathways that best fit my specific personality traits.
I am now finishing my final R.O.A.R. program course. I have professional connections, a quality resume, interview experience, and internship experience in my preferred industry, I’ve pinpointed careers I want to pursue in the workforce, and so much more. Most importantly, my confidence in my abilities has been greatly heightened and I feel much more prepared for life after graduation.
A professional alumnus or business community member who has volunteered their time and expertise to help you develop your career. You will meet with your mentor four times during the semester you are enrolled in BUAD 3300. Together, you will talk about what to expect when you enter the professional world, how to network and put your best foot forward, how to craft a stand-out résumé, and what to expect in the "real world" of your particular industry. We encourage mentors to impart their own experiences in developing a meaningful relationship and deepening the mentorship process.
The R.O.A.R. Mentorship Program is the third course in our R.O.A.R. Program, it is also known as BUAD 3300. This program is a one-credit course that is required for graduation from the College of Business. In addition to meeting with your mentor there will be coursework for you to complete during the semester to help you transition from college to your professional career.
