By Jennifer Whittaker and Olivia DeWald This article is a part of the March/April 2017, Volume 29, Number 2, Audiology Today issue. As an audiology student, there are numerous opportunities to learn from or serve as a mentor. We may be assigned a faculty advisor to guide us through our academic career. Perhaps, we choose a research mentor to facilitate the completion of an independent research project or capstone. In some audiology programs, administration or Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) Chapters ask their second- or third-year audiology students to serve as “buddies” or “mentors” to incoming first-year AuD students or undergraduates. We asked a few students from the SAA to describe the value that mentorship has brought to their academic careers and their personal experiences acting as a mentee, mentor, or both! Rachel Appleton is a member at large on the SAA Board of Directors and the chair of the Humanitarian Committee. She is currently completing her externship with the Edward Hines VA Hospital. Stephanie Berry is an undergraduate associate member of the SAA and a member of the SAA Undergraduate Committee. She is a senior at Washington University. Joshua Huppert is the president of the SAA. He is completing his externship at Nemours/A.I. DuPont’s Hospital for Children. Each of these students has a unique perspective on mentorship based on different experiences throughout their academic careers.
