Be an Honors Peer Mentor

We are seeking 38 motivated Honors students to serve as mentors for the incoming class of 2026. Please use this link for application materials. Deadline to apply is Sunday, July 10th at midnight.

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 design at least three outings or activities with their mentees. We are also ask that you accompany your mentees to required group experiences, like the welcome dinner, a play at Syracuse Stage, the Honors lecture, and the community reading day which we will hold on Saturday, September 10.

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.

Mentors will be compensated for your time and efforts. We will pay $1000 to all mentors who complete the terms of the contract we’ll ask you to sign.
