There are over 200,000 alumni at Johns Hopkins University. School of Education has 22,000, and that literally is around the world. It's a warm, inviting place that encourages you to build relationships, and also develop them, not only as a student, but as an alumnus as well. Mentoring can be one of those valuable experiences that a student has because it gives you an opportunity not only to learn about career opportunities, but really get some honest feedback about how you can be more effective. Really all aspects of career preparation, career clarification can be enhanced through a mentoring relationship.
