Peer Mentor Program

Peer Mentors

What is the Peer Mentor Program?

The Campuswide Honors Program (CHP) Peer Mentor Program pairs each incoming student with a continuing honors student, who serves as a mentor. Mentors help connect new students to the CHP and the UCI campus by answering questions about student life and referring students to on-campus resources. CHP students interact with their mentors both informally and through planned events like mixers, potlucks and movie nights.

Why should I get involved?

Participation in the Peer Mentor Program often leads to lasting friendships and is a fun way for you to take on a leadership role.

As a peer mentor, you have the chance to share your personal experiences about classes/instructors, research, commuting or living on campus, and ideas for participation and involvement both on campus and in the Honors Program.

You have much to offer to others, so why not pay it forward and become a mentor!

How do I get involved?

Continuing students can apply to be a peer mentor during spring quarter (April/May) of the academic year. If you are interested in learning more about Peer Mentor Program and/or have additional questions, please email chpmentorcoordinators@gmail.com.
