The Honors College (HC) Mentor Program provides support to first-year Honors students by pairing them with upperclassmen who commit to serving as a role model and guide. HC Mentors help first-year students adjust to college life by connecting them with resources, information, and people during their first semester. The structured mentor program promotes first-year student success and retention while also instilling in upperclassmen the principles of leadership, citizenship, and the value of giving back.
How It Works
Each HC Mentor will be paired with 15-22 first-year students based on their HON 105 section enrollment. Mentors will work with the HON 105 instructor to support the HON 105 section, which will include attending the weekly classes, maintaining regular communication with mentees, holding individual meetings as needed, and participating in HC Mentor-related events
