Honors Program Organizations
Honors Program students participate actively in a variety of organizations that allow them to develop interpersonal and leadership skills. We strongly encourage our students to seek out such opportunities, whether in student government - where Honors students are well represented - the university marching band, organized sports or service on their college advisory boards. Opportunities abound, go to http://involved.unl.edu/get-involved.
Peer Mentoring: upper-class student volunteers lead group discussions with 6 or 8 first-year students once a week for about an hour in the fall semester. This is a wonderful way to introduce new students to the Honors culture and campus resources. For information, contact Ann Koopmann (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Honors Ambassadors: selected students work with the Admissions office attending events for prospective students and representing the Program in on and off campus functions. Mardell Maxwell (email@example.com), Assistant Director of Admissions for Honors Recruitment, is the contact person (http://admissions.unl.edu/nebraska/ambassador/university-ambassadors.aspx).
Honors Program Student Advisory Board (http://www.unlhonorsboard.webs.com/): Twenty-one elected students have leadership roles in the Honors community, participating in Program development, recruitment activities, and organizing social events. Margo Berends (Margo's e-mail ) currently serves as the Board president. The Honors Board has office hours every night from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM in the Thesis Library. The Thesis Library is located in the Honors Program Office (on the first floor of Raymond, right across from the Blue TV Lounge). Board members provide students insight into pressing Honors issues and act as a liaison between students and the Honors administrators. It certainly is a forum for students to come and chat with a Board member about any concerns or suggestions they might have. Also, it will provide a space to hang out in good company!
