The Honors Peer Program was created to assist incoming first year students through their first semester at the University of Northern Iowa by providing a community of peers and dedicated leaders committed to their academic and social success. Peer Leaders attend a spring training session, meet their groups during the first year social in the fall, plan two group activities, and participate in a service project.
"My favorite part was being able to get to know other people in the Honors Program (including the other leaders) and being able to help and interact with new freshmen" --Previous Peer Leader
"My favorite part of being a peer leader was being able to give advice to new honors students and reassure them about their concerns. Also, I think it is fun to meet new people that you will most likely see around campus again." -- Previous Peer Leader
