During their orientation, each new Honors College freshman is paired with a peer mentor,
an upper-classman enrolled in the Honors College. These mentors are students selected
and trained in leadership, advising, and group dynamics so they can share their college experience
New students will register for IDH 2930 - Peer Mentoring and will meet with a small group led by their mentor throughout the fall semester. This class is zero credits and has no tuition charge, but it will be reflected on transcripts and is a required part of the Honors College Experience.
The purpose of the Peer Mentor program is:
- To ease the transition from high school to college by providing a venue to process college experiences, ask questions, and find an identity as an Honors College scholar.
- To connect new students with the Honors College, students, staff, and faculty.
- To start building networks of people and places that will be great resources at USF.
If you would like to apply to become a peer mentor, or if you have any questions about the program, please contact Ms. Cayla Lanier.
