For those whose first year it is at UCR either as first year students or as transfer students we can pair you up with experienced ACM members so they can guide you as you explore our university. Help with classes, projects, and career pathways are all available with your individual mentor!
Need help in your courses? Project? Career? Office hours are a designated time to work hosted by ACM officers and other experienced members. Come in and get help with any lower division class and the hosts will share other skills they know!
