Become a mentee to receive helpful academic and college advice from upperclassmen and start your year at UCSD with a loaded toolbelt! Become a mentor to share your insights and experience with mentees, and have a mentoring experience that looks great on resumes, extracurriculars, and essays! Chempanions will mutually benefit all members of the program and help our members become more involved in both ACS-SA and the chemistry community here at UC San Diego!
