Upperclassmen Wanted to Mentor First-Year Students

Primary tabs

The KNIT Mentorship program aims to engage, empower, and prepare our newest students as they transition to becoming a part of the Georgia Tech Community. KNIT is founded on four tenets of engagement with new students as represented by our name--Knowledge, Nurture, Interaction, & Tradition.

We strive to do this through personal 1-1 mentoring relationships with successful upperclassmen students. KNIT also hosts multiple events during the fall semester to help new students meet other first years and mentors that can assist with their transition at Georgia Tech. 


By pairing with upperclass mentors, we strive to provide academic support, advice, and direction from experienced students to students navigating their first semester of classes at Georgia Tech.


KNIT aims to nurture personal growth with each of their mentees based on their personal goals for their first year and entire college career at Tech.


KNIT understands the mentoring and personal growth goes beyond a 1 on 1 relationship. The importance of community building and group interactions is also important in the success of our new students at Tech.


One of the things that makes Georgia Tech so unique is the tradition that exists within our community. With KNIT we hope to share these traditions with our newest Yellow Jackets, while creating some new ones of our own.
