The family program is a great way to meet new people and make friends in AMA. If you choose to apply, you will be placed in a family with a similar personality as you and similar interests so that you really feel that you are a part of AMA. Families do many activities together like attending socials, going out to eat together, and of course competing against the other families to be named the best one.
The mentorship program matches each person interested with an upperclassman who knows the ropes of AMA and UT life in general. It is a way for you to have that one person to confide in about anything and everything, and for you to feel comfortable asking them anything to help you out in your time at UT. Whether it be asking about their past marketing internships, how to write a resume, or what their favorite place is to get pizza, your mentor is there to help guide you and to become your friend.
