Rotaract Mentor/Mentee Program

Interested in an opportunity that lets you connect with other members in Rotaract on a more personal level?  We’ll pair upperclassmen with lowerclassmen to help us grow together as a club through mentorship, fellowship, and fun!  If you did not fill out a survey at the general meeting, please download the survey here, fill it out, and e-mail the updated PDF back to [email protected].  Thanks!

Mentor / Mentee Program Update

Be on the lookout for more “official” events next quarter! With finals week fast approaching, plan study dates with your mentors / mentees – or even de-stress events. Nothing can brighten these stress-filled weeks better than the company of others.

Apply for 2012-2013 Board!

Interested in applying for board?  Remember to submit your application by 11:59 PM on April 24th

Rotaract 5160 District RetreatSaturday, April 28th, 9:30 AM – 6:00 PM @ UC Berkeley (Meet at the MU Tennis Courts)

Sure, the fog will be thick, the challenges great, and the stakes high, but get ready to use every bit of your brute strength and sharp cleverness as we tackle what it means to be a Rotaractor in District 5160. This 5-hour Hunger Games-themed mini-retreat is an opportunity for Rotaractors to network, meet the rest of their Rotary family and do service while having fun! There will be guest speakers and leadership development workshops, but, like last year, we will end the afternoon with an intensive inter-club competition, so please dress comfortably! May Rotaract be ever in your favor! Registration costs $5 and includes lunch.
