That’s great that your school offers a mentoring program! As far as a location to meet, all those you listed are appropriate. I would consider the length of time it might take to conduct your interview and the time of day when selecting a location. Your interviewee may want a snack, drink, etc. It’s ok to check with the person you will be speaking with if the location is ideal too. Maybe give the person an option – café or Starbucks. I would recommend you dress business casual at least. You want to present yourself as professional but not look too dressy. If you are unsure what business casual means, you can search the internet for some ideas.
Best of luck! Networking is a huge step in the right direction and connecting with a mentor is a great way to start.
