The SASHP is looking for motivated, interested and dedicated students to mentor the incoming class. WE NEED YOU to help us orient our incoming students by serving as a peer mentor!
Apply immediately at: https://secure.sas.
The School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program matches new SASHP students with current student mentors. Mentors volunteer as resources who are available to share information about everything from requirements to professors, to tell you where to get advice, and to be a familiar face at SASHP and college events. Mentors range in class year from sophomores to seniors, and majors from Art History to Molecular Biology.
When possible, we match students on the basis of possible major, career plans, and extracurricular interests. The participants determine the nature of the mentoring relationship: some meet only once or twice, and some form lasting friendships. We leave that part up to you!
***Current Mentors must re-apply for the next academic year and all Peer Mentors must attend training***

WANTED: Interested, motivated SASHP students to volunteer for an academic advising opportunity with your new peers!
The School of Arts and Sciences Academic Planning & Advising (APA) Days are full-day programs in April/May in which students in the Class of 2018 are welcomed to campus and begin their academic journey. As part of this program, students meet with advisers (faculty, staff, graduate students, and peer advisers) to help them understand their academic options and make choices about their fall classes.
Here's your chance to take a special Honors Colloquium!
This Colloquium is special in two ways: it will take place in the summer, and it will be taught by our Writer-in-Residence Paul Blaney (http://www.sashonors.rutgers.
This hybrid course will focus on the concept of the city. We'll be considering fictional cities, ancient and modern cities, ideal and organic cities, declining cities, and imaginary cities. Questions explored will include how do cities work, how do they not work, and how to design a city that will thrive. Details below:
