“This type of re​​​​​​​lationship works because it’s someone who takes a personal interest in you, as well as academic.”                                                                              
-Dawn King, Olive Harvey Colle​ge Graduate, Fall 2013                                                                                                    
“[My mentor] has given me the confidence to go seek information and he always makes it clear that no one is going to stop you if you want to do it. The only person who can stop you is yourself.“                          ​                                                                  
-Ishmael Ochir, Olive Harvey College Valedictorian, Spring 2014                                                                 

“This kind of relationship works because, simply, [my mentor] cares. When a teacher realizes a student is showing interest in what he's saying, they have to seek out that student.“       ​                                                         
-Kyle Reid, Olive Harvey College Graduate, Fall, 2013  ​
