Course description

Honors Community: Peer Mentoring is a required course for all first-year Honors students. This course is designed to help first-year Honors students successfully transition to college and to life in the Honors Program specifically. Students will make valuable friendships, learn about important resources and opportunities available through Honors, and gain insight into strategies for success in Honors and at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Our purpose is to support first-year Honors students in their transition to college by providing intentionally-designed experiential learning opportunities based in High-Impact Educational Practices (AACU). These experiences will help students build meaningful relationships with faculty, staff, and student peers; understand Honors Program expectations; and connect with a wealth of valuable opportunities across campus.

Course description

You know who you are, but do you know why you are who you are? The goal of this class is to use different disciplines and methodologies to understand the factors and influences that shape your personality, interests, behavior, and how you respond to different circumstances. Although we all spend a lot of time considering our interests and tastes, we rarely explore the various factors--such as biological, psychological, evolutionary, environmental, and cultural--that caused us to develop into the unique, fascinating individuals that we are. This transdisciplinary class will explore who you are and why this might be, what has shaped your individual choices, behavior, and personality. There is a biological, genetic, and evolutionary you; there is a familial, community, and cultural you. The question is: how are these intertwined and how do they shape YOU?
