Luke Nichols is a sophomore Civil Engineering student at South Dakota State University.  In the fall of 2021, Luke and I were paired as part of a mentorship program at South Dakota State University, my alma mater.  

In this episode, we take a break from a specific building and focus on the importance of mentorships.  Luke currently leads the mentorship program at SDSU and through our mentorship relationship over the last two years, we have both found conversations about what students are looking for and what employers are looking for mutually beneficial.  And we think other people can find these conversations very useful.

Luke is also a collegiate level swimmer and loves to go hiking and exploring in Colorado.  I have a feeling he has big things in his future!
