The transition to college can be intimidating and overwhelming. The Krannert Mentoring Program exists to help our freshman take this giant leap. We want to give our students a step up academically and professionally.

The program pairs incoming freshmen with junior and senior mentors and is offered every fall semester for 16 weeks. During that time, mentors and mentees meet for social and professional activities ranging from sporting events to a career fair outing.

Our objective is to make first-year students feel welcome and comfortable in the Krannert community, encouraging them to get involved early and to develop mentoring and leadership skills they can transfer to others.
