What is igKnight?
igKnight is a peer mentoring program for Wartburg College students.  The program itself focuses on mentoring (intentional one-on-one relationships that foster growth in both the mentor and mentee) students wherever they are in their college experience.  This means anyone, in any year (1Y, 2Y, 3Y or 4Y) can sign up to be partnered with a mentor.  The igKnight Mentoring Program was created to help students pursue and meet their academic, personal, and professional goals.

Who will mentor me?
