is comprised of Honors students who share a passion for the success of the University Honors Program. Meeting every Tuesday at 5:30PM in the Alumni Room in building 12, the Honors Council makes important decisions about the future of Honors; they may vote on new admission requirements, suggest future Honors seminars, and decide on themes and details of upcoming Honors events.
The Honors Council is divided into three committees:
The Honors Council is headed by an Executive Board, made up of officers who head the various committees and take charge of the work that goes on behind the scenes of Honors Council.
The Honors Mentors are a group of students who lead and advise incoming Freshmen and Transfer students in the University Honors Program. A Mentor is matched with incoming students with similar interests. Mentors will lead their group of mentees at Honors Orientation and be able to make sure students donâ€™t have any trouble acclimating to UWF. After Honors Orientation, Mentors will be available during their office hour each week to help students with various aspects of their academic life. Mentors will help new students discover how they can get involved with the University Honors Program and build a strong network of friends through participating in honors activities like the annual Halloween Party, Honors formal, fundraising events, and service events. Students interested in being a Honors Mentor should contact the Honors office.
