Honors students have the opportunity to learn from upper-level Honors undergraduates, their peers, and UGA alumni through several programs offered by the Morehead Honors College and the university.

Peer Mentoring

Honors Teaching Assistants (HTAs) lead HONS 1000H seminars in the fall and spring semesters. HTAs are peer mentors for first-year Honors students, introducing them to curricular, research, scholarship, travel-study, and internship opportunities within the Honors College, the UGA campus, and the community.

Peer Assisted Leadership Program (PAL) is offered through the Honors Student Council. Every semester, Honors students are paired through PAL to discuss everything from classes to clubs to shared hobbies. PAL began as a student-led initiative in 2015 and has helped to foster a stronger sense of community among Honors students. PAL’s main function is to connect Honors students of all years and majors, creating friendships and working relationships.

Alumni Mentoring

The UGA Mentor Program personalizes the mentoring experience, connecting you with alumni who are right for your interests and career goals. The UGA Mentor Program, the university’s first comprehensive mentorship initiative, is a digital platform that allows students to form mentoring relationships with alumni—regardless of geographic location—who can help make their future a little clearer.
