TAM Peer Mentors

TAM Peer Mentors provide guidance and support for students pursuing a Textile & Apparel Management major, minor, or Digital Merchandising certificate. Peer Mentors can help students navigate the following:

  • Academics (understanding your degree program, course suggestions, degree checklist/planner, how to read a degree audit, how to communicate with your professor)
  • Career (resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn 101, how/where to search for positions, networking best practices and opportunities)
  • Involvement (student organizations, departmental involvement opportunities)
  • Campus Resources (resources available and how to find resources)

Additionally, I am a TAM Peer Learning Assistant under the direction of Professor Smith for the Kellwood Apparel Technology Lab and Kitty Dickerson Technology classroom. I love the TAM program at Mizzou and have had nothing but good experiences. Please feel free to contact me with any questions and support, including scheduling a time to meet outside of my office hours.
