Plus, you will
enjoy social time with a small group of other first-year students
and their mentors. As a CAP protégé you will
work with mentors, returning Wartburg students that complete
a mentor training program, to identify and learn strategies
to help you reach your goals. You will meet once per week,
either individually or as a small group.

2011-2012 Participant Quotes:
It was nice having a student mentor, someone I could turn to when I had a question about anything.
It gave me a place to go if I needed to talk about something or ask questions from a peers point of view.
I gained some valuable learning tools from my mentor, especially things like time management skills, activities I can be involved in, and how to study and prepare for certain classes
I learned how to manage time and that there are places on campus which you can go to if you need help
Being in the CAP program has certainly aided my first semester of college. My mentor has been fantastic, and I wouldn't have her have done anything different. I am now clearly aware of the resources available to me and of the vast existence of opportunities that Wartburg provides. The CAP program has assisted my knowledge of the college itself as well as the possibilities provided here, and has considerably lessened my any initial intimidation I may have harbored. I extend my gratitude to the CAP program and especially to my mentor for being exceptionally accepting and supportive.
