Be an Honors Peer Mentor

We are seeking 25 motivated Honors students to serve as mentors for the incoming class of 2025. Please use this link for application materials. Deadline to apply is Sunday, July 11th at midnight.

For the first time, all first year and transfer students will take FYS 101 and will not be enrolled in HNR 100. Therefore, we need a robust mentoring program to offset the loss of community building that took place in HNR 100.

We are asking that all mentors meet at least six times with their mentees, preferably in group activities which we will support you in setting up. We’ll also ask that you accompany your mentees to required group experiences, like the welcome dinner, a play at Syracuse Stage (if plays are in person), the Milton lecture (if there is one), and the community reading day which we will hold on the third Saturday of the semester.

We’ll hold 3 Zoom training sessions during July and August which will also be mandatory. We will schedule trainings once we have selected mentors.

For the first time, mentors will be compensated for your time and efforts! We will pay $500 to all mentors who complete the terms of the contract we’ll ask you to sign.
