Welcome To K-State's Guide to Personal Success Program!
GPS is K-State First's freshman mentoring program. This program matches K-State faculty/staff/graduate students with first-year K-State students. The intended purpose of a guide (mentor) is to serve as a professional point of reference throughout the student's first year at K-State. Guides do not replace academic advisors. Rather, they will share information outside of academics and class selection.
Guides are here to share their knowledge of campus resources and to provide support and feedback as needed. We ask that students and their guides connect at least three times per semester. Enjoying lunch in the residence halls, grabbing coffee at the library and bowling at the union are all examples of how mentees and guides have connected throughout the first year.
The GPS program is free to join. Simply 'connect' with your guide at least three times each semester and you are considered an active GPS member! GPS guides and mentees are also invited to monthly GPS sponsored 'connect' events that they can attend.
