Rising Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors…Become and Honors College Peer Mentor!
Posted by Tim on June 21, 2021 in Community Announcements, Honors Program Announcements, Volunteering, Volunteers Needed
We hope you are enjoying the summer!
If you are interested in serving as a Peer Mentor in the Honors Connections Program during the 2021-2022 academic year, please fill out our onlineapplication by Friday, June 25th.
The Honors College Peer Mentor Program is designed to help first-year Honors students adjust to life at UB and to the Honors College experience. Our intent is that through this program, our incoming students feel welcome at UB and excited to be a part of the Honors College family.
As an Honors Connections Program Mentor, you will be asked to communicate with your assigned first-year student(s) within two weeks of receiving their contact information, which will be around mid-July. In addition, you will be expected to:
- Meet with your mentee(s) during the first two weeks of classes via zoom or in-person
- Encourage participation in Honors College and campus-wide activities
- Help answer general questions or concerns your mentee(s) may have
In general, we hope that each mentor will help make the transition to college a little easier for our new Honors College scholars.
If selected, Honors Peer Mentors will be required to submit a mini-profile of themselves to be shared with their peer mentee, including a photo.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will reply as soon as we are able.
