Who are Honors Student Leaders?

Honors Student Leaders are students in the University Honors Program who have either participated in or are participating as a Peer Educator, or who are actively participating as an Honors Community Ambassador. Our Honors Student Leaders are interested in helping incoming and current Honors students as they navigate their college experience by being available to answer questions. 

Why connect with an Honors Student Leader?

Whether your a prospective student wondering what it’s like to live in the Honors Living Learning Community, or a current student seeking advice about certain Honors courses, there’s no better person to ask than a student who is currently living in the Honors LLC and taking Honors prefix courses! All of our Student Leaders are wonderful, kind, and helpful students from a variety of backgrounds and majors who have graciously volunteered to be available for questions from prospective, admitted and current students. 

Please be patient as we build our new Student Leader profile tool!

Pathways to Becoming an Honors Student Leader

Honors Peer Educators

Honors Peer Educators (PEs) are leaders in the Honors community by teaching a section of the Honors 100 seminar. They are integral in welcoming, mentoring, and informing incoming Honors students. PEs share insights about and experiences with Honors curriculum, community, and resources with new students.
