University Honors Program

Peer Program

The Honors Peer Program was created to assist incoming freshman through their first semester at the University of Northern Iowa by providing a community of peers and dedicated leaders committed to their academic and social success.

Program Goals:

  • To welcome and acquaint freshman with the UNI Honors Program and what it has to offer.

  • To make strong connections (in the first six weeks of classes) between members of the group and to establish role models around whom the students will feel comfortable.

  • To provide an opportunity for discussion, mentoring, and general questions about college life.

  • To have fun!

"It was really great to meet people who share my major and are in the honors program. After meeting them in group, I realized that a few of them are actually in a couple classes with me. It definit ely created friendships that may not have occurred otherwise and I believe that these friendships will last through my years here."
