Advising in the Honors Program is formatted to assist students in the development of their program honors experience plan, answer questions about program requirements, and serve as a referral system to other campus resources. While advising staff can provide many answers that relate to traditional advising concerns, they are also on hand to help students identify personal, impactful, and meaningful honors experience that both reflect program mission priorities and their own passions/interests.
Our students frequently comment that meetings with our advising/mentoring/coaching staff are transformative and life-altering. Much more than appointments focused around course selection, honors advising sessions dive deeper into the singular needs that resonate with our students. Our desire is to help students attain a self-awareness that provides a confidence that virtually guarantees future societal impact.
Honors advising only addresses issues specific to the University Honors Program and should not be confused with academic advising. Each student should see their academic advisor at least once a year or as needed or required by their college.
