The Honors College supports an extensive student peer-to-peer mentoring program.
When you enroll in your HNR 101 class, you will also gain a peer mentor. Mentors are trained Honors Student Ambassadors who can help with our honors coursework, provide tips about your research projects, or help you with any academic or personal challenges that you might face as a first-year student.
Each mentor is assigned 7 to 8 first year students and arranges both group meetings and one-on-one sessions to help address your needs. The weekly group mentoring sessions early in your first semester are also intended to help you meet other honors first-year students and form bonds with your classmates that extend beyond the classroom.
In addition, honors mentors will reach out to you over the summer to get to know you before you ever arrive on campus. We have some fun activities planned for the summer to help in your transition to college and serve as a means of getting to know one another.
