First-Year Small Group Advising


Get pumped for September small group meetings! What’s that, you ask? Think of small group meetings as your orientation to the Honors Program. Each month, we’ll cover topics relevant to your new life as a Colonial, hear from our peer advisors, and blow your mind with our brainy insights.

This month, we’ll:

  • Introduce you to all things Honors advising,
  • Learn how to craft a four year plan, one of the cornerstones of the Honors freshman experience,
  • Start getting to know each other, and
  • Answer your questions about all things UHP!

Every first-year student must attend one of these meetings. Each freshmen small group meeting will last 1 hour and is capped at 18 students (these are small group meetings, after all).  Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday’s meetings are in District House, and Friday’s meetings will be in Shenkman Hall.

Sign up online today to make sure you get the time slot you prefer!
