The organization provides a way to interact and build connections with fellow classmates, professors, and representatives of firms in the construction industry. It also provides a way to get involved at Purdue while having fun with like-minded individuals.

CEMentors is an organization that connects the upper and lower classes of CEM by building friendships. The mission of CEMentors is to pair junior and senior CEM students with incoming CEM students to mentor these sophomores as they join the program and take on their first internships. There is no requirement for how much mentees and their CEMentors interact, but students get out of it what they put into it and are encouraged to make the most out of CEMentors opportunities.
