About Us

The Orientation Leaders/Peer Mentors help incoming Macaulay Honors College students discover and pursue their passions and interests, adjust to life at Macaulay Honors College, and develop the skills needed to become strong leaders within and outside Macaulay Honors College. The Orientation Leaders/Peer Mentors pair new Macaulay Honors students with upper-class mentors who will lead small group sessions designed to help students discover their passions and interests and to set themselves up for postgraduate success. They will cultivate discussions about model participation in an academic discussion through careful listening and incisive but respectful speaking. Peer Mentors will also check in with students to ensure that they are thriving in their college and extracurricular environment, and help connect the student to resources when necessary.
