About Fit the Mitt

Whether you're in Michigan temporarily or it's your childhood hang-out, we want you to feel at home while at GVSU.

Fit the Mitt is a mentoring program designed to make sure this happens through promoting intercultural awareness, creating a welcoming community among university Faculty, Staff, and international students. Pairings are done each fall semester with mentors (Faculty and Staff) and mentees (new International Students) opting into the program by filling out the respective applications found on this site.

Current mentors and mentees should check out the High Five Rewards designed to recognize your commitment to hospitality and learning!
