GCU Student Mentors 

Get involved in mentoring at GCU! Mentoring is a great way for students to help other students. You may benefit from having a mentor, or you may wish to work as a mentor yourself. Either way, the experience will enrich your time at GCU, and they are always interested in recruiting SWAP students.
