Monday, May 3, 2021
Olivia Long is a senior student in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Long serves as a mentor through the CEAT Scholars program for three OSU freshman. She is a perfect example of what great mentoring looks like and as a personable and respectful leader, she has been able to have conversations with her mentees that might have taken years for faculty and staff to have.
The CEAT scholar experience is greatly enhanced by caring and supporting mentors like
Long, who was recently recognized for her mentoring contributions by the Oklahoma
Foundation for Excellence.
Professors are pleased and impressed with Longs commitment to the classroom. She has been a top tier student, is polite and respectful and asks interesting and inspiring questions. When working with a professor on her Honors College project she treated the project as an avenue to venture beyond the classroom to gain an advanced understanding of practical engineering challenges. Long has made a positive and lasting impression at ECE.
