Honors Mentor Applications now open for the 2018-2019 academic year!

Remember when you were a new freshman feeling lost on campus? The Honors Mentor program is a lifeline for incoming Honors College freshmen to help ease the transition into the Honors College and university life by grouping new students with experienced upperclassmen. New students will have a contact from the first day they arrive on campus to help them navigate this new step in their lives. For fall 2018, we aim to pair 2 upperclassman together to work with a group of 4-5 incoming freshmen. This is an excellent leadership opportunity and chance to make a huge impact on lives within SCHC!
