Apply to Be an Honors Mentor

July 27, 2015

Are you interested in sharing your experiences with first-year Honors students, building your résumé with leadership experience, and being a role model for new students? If so, apply to be an Honors Mentor in the UHP Peer Mentor Program!

Honors Mentors are responsible for meeting with their mentees (1–2 mentees per mentor) once a month and helping them find a community within the Honors Program. Mentors aid first-year students in their transition from high school to the University, serve as a link to the Honors Program, and address Honors-related questions and concerns.


  • Fall 2015 semester commitment
  • Mandatory training/kick-off event, early evening 9/10/2015 (More details to follow when mentors are selected)
  • Three in-person meetings with your mentee (not including the kick-off)
  • Sophomore, Junior, or Senior standing (as of fall 2015)
  • 3.5 or higher cumulative GPA
  • Extracurricular experience or knowledge of campus to share
  • Students who served as mentors last year must re-apply for this year's program
  • You will be notified of your mentee(s) during the first week of school.

Apply online by Friday, August 7!

Please contact the UHP Peer Mentor Program student coordinator, or UHP Mentor Program Advisor, with any questions.
