ALANA Experience

The ALANA Experience is a 4.5-day program that takes place from Sunday, August 24th through Thursday, August 28th. The program brings first-year ALANA students to campus one week early to meet other incoming and upperclass ALANA students, get acclimated to life at the university, and build tools for academic and personal success. The program is free, but registration is required.

During the ALANA Experience, you will:

  • Learn how to succeed academically and socially
  • Explore Bentley services and resources 
  • Meet faculty, staff and administrators
  • Network with corporate partners and Bentley ALANA alumni at special events and workshops
  • Join the ASAP mentorship program

ALANA Student Advancement Program

Through the ALANA Student Advancement Program (A.S.A.P), we pair freshman and sophomore students with upperclass mentors to create a support system for navigating life at Bentley and promoting academic and social development.

Typically, mentees are freshmen and mentors are juniors, with the relationship sustained throughout the mentee’s first two years at Bentley. Matches are made based on factors such as common personal interests, academic programs, and others. After completing the program, mentees then are able to become mentors for the incoming freshman class.

Applying to A.S.A.P

Applications are now being accepted for both mentees and mentors. Click the links to apply online to be either mentee or a  mentor. For more information, contact Nina DeAgrela at 781.891.2971 or

This year's coordinators are Priya Patel, Stephanie Wehby, Ashley Kim, Emiel Barbosa, and Jassiely Gonzalez.
