Carissa Mayer

Academic Adviser


Here in Honors I… advise students, teach Honors 100, assist with the Peer Educator program, and coordinate community building and student leadership opportunities.

I like thinking about & studying… how to have productive conversations about controversial topics like social inequality, climate change, and mental health.

My first week in college… I decided to branch away from my high school friends and embrace opportunities to meet people from different backgrounds than my own. It was scary to put myself out there but was one of the best decisions I ever made.
