The Merrimack Honors Peer Mentoring Program connects first-year honors students with upperclassmen who serve as a resource, liaison, and role model. This presentation will discuss the peer-mentoring program after its first year. It will include perspectives from a mentor and mentee and will provide data documenting its successes and problems.
