Honors Mentors

Each spring we hire some of our passionate, involved, and enthusiastic current students to help us welcome and orient our new students into the Honors Program.  They lead, guide, teach, learn, challenge and play with the freshmen to ensure that they understand our Honors Program.  These are the mentors for The Honors Experience Pre-Orientation 2016!
