Academic Mentors

The Honors Academic Mentor Program connects Honors underclassmen with Honors upperclassmen from whom they can gain advice and insight.

Scheduled sessions encourage students to ask questions they may not feel comfortable asking their advisors and allow them to learn firsthand about the variety of college milestones that our Honors students have achieved.
