Student2Student and the UHP Student Advisors

10 Feb

We won't meet in a dimensionless white void though, so don't worry.

Hey UHP’ers! You’ve spent a semester or more here, you’ve learned the basics – but what do you still want to know? What information are you seeking that only Honors students can tell you? Are you looking to get to know and meet other Honors students? Then Student2Student is the event for you!

Why?
Student2Student is a unique opportunity for Honors students in all class years to discuss issues and experiences unique to the Honors Program. Student Advisors serve the explicit purpose of peer advising; they share their experiences and provide peer guidance where professional academic advisors and faculty advisors cannot.

Who?
Students in all UHP class years serve as Student Advisors.  Freshman are specifically encouraged to attend our first Student2Student event, but students in any class year should feel free to come.  Check the Facebook event to see who’s planning on coming.

How?
Come to Student2Student to meet your UHP Student Advisors! Each advisor will host a table and we’ll provide a list of their areas of expertise. Examples of these areas include class selection, study abroad,  academic adjustment, student orgs, conflict resolution, balancing science and Honors – the list goes on! You choose a table, chat with an Advisor and fellow students for about 10 minutes, then switch to another table. We will of course have FREE FOOD for you to munch on as you switch! Think of it like speed-networking or speed-dating – but with a LOT less awkwardness.

Can’t make it on February 24? We’ll also share contact info and bios of the Student Advisors via email and on the web. When you have a question for any of the advisors, just email and ask!

When/Where?
Our first UHP Student2Student night is 5:00 – 7:00 pm on Thursday, February 24, in the Honors Townhouse. RSVP required to uhp@gwu.edu – spaces are limited so sign up ASAP!

Join the Facebook event to show your friends you’ll be there too. Just remember, an RSVP on Facebook does NOT confirm your spot at the event.

Want more info?
Email Liz at lsutton@gwu.edu if you have any questions, or if you’re an upperclassman who’d like to serve as a Student Advisor! We hope to see you on February 24 at Student2Student!
