KMP Mentee

The transition to college can be an intimidating and overwhelming experience. KMP helps the transition go as smoothly as possible and gives students a head start academically and professionally. Through the KMP, mentees will be paired up with at least one junior or senior student mentor for fall semester. During this time, mentees will interact with their mentor, other mentors, and mentees that are part of the KMP.

“The mentoring course started out to me as a simple class that would result in me giving a few cliché pointers to two students in their first 16 weeks of college. But in the end, it was so much more as it made me a better students, a better leader, and most importantly a better person.”  ~ Brooks Caley
