Honors 101 is a peer-mentor orientation program for Honors freshmen. First-year students are divided into small groups and are partnered with mentors, who are current upper-class Honors students. These mentor groups meet throughout the fall.
Mentors serve as key points of contact during the new student's transition to AU and are a resource and guide for anything from study groups to the sights and attractions of D.C. Honors 101 mentors, working with Honors 101 co-chairs and Honors staff, are critical to the success of the semester-long orientation program for Honors freshmen. These Honors students help to create -- and run -- this important student mentoring program.
New students meet their Honors 101 mentors, fellow group members, and the Honors staff at the Honors 101 Kick-Off, which is held on the Saturday before fall classes start. In addition to the Kick-Off, Honors 101 incorporates group advising, all-freshmen events, conversations with faculty, and activities planned and run by the respective Honors 101 mentors for each group. Honors 101 groups meet on a regular basis throughout the fall semester to help with the transition to college and to develop a cohesive Honors community.
