Honors Mentoring Program

Mentors meeting with their Honors 298o class section for the first time.

Honors Mentors are an important part of the Honors first-year experience! Mentors help with early move-in, the Honors College Induction Ceremony and the Honors Retreat. Mentors help connect first-year Honors students with the resources they need to be successful at West Virginia University.

Mentors also serve as teaching assistants for HONR 298o: Honors Orientation during the fall semester. Students can earn Honors credit through the mentor program by taking HONR 402: Peer Mentoring and HONR 490: Teaching Practicum.


Students who have completed a First-Year Seminar and earned a “B” or better in HONR 402: Peer Mentoring can become mentors for new Honors students. Applications open during each fall semester.
