Carleton Alumni Mentors Program
Carleton Alumni offers the Alumni Mentors Program, which pairs motivated upper-year students and recent graduates with an alumni mentor.
Something to keep in mind while pursuing your degree is your Co-Curricular Record (CCR), which recognizes your student involvement “outside the classroom” while providing meaningful experiences. This is a resource offered as a way to record and encourage involvement in student leadership development, extracurricular activities, and community service opportunities. With a CCR students will be able to present an official documentation to prospective employers and graduate schools to both complement their academic transcript and demonstrate the holistic learning they engaged in during their academic career.
There are many resources available both on- and off-campus.
Mental Health, Well-Being, and Counselling
Support and resources are available on Carleton’s Mental Health and Well-Being page. Additionally, Carleton’s Health and Counselling Services page offers information about medical and counselling services, and information about emergencies and crisis (e.g., urgent mental health problems, sexual assault, domestic violence, etc.). Please click here for more information about crisis support, and here for a list of on- and off-campus emergency numbers, mental health crisis hotlines, suicide prevention hotlines, sexual assault hotlines, violence and domestic violence hotlines, addiction and substance abuse hotlines, AIDS/HIV hotlines, and gender and culture specific hotlines.
