Get involved with Northeast State Honors

Honors Student Association

The Honors Student Association allows honors-eligible students to take ownership of their college experience. By electing their own leadership and planning a calendar of events, the association offers opportunities for student-led programming, service-learning, and leadership development. The association also collaborates with honors faculty and staff to create a positive impact on the campus and honors program, as well as fostering a sense of community and fellowship among its members. Join the Honors Student Association and become part of a community that empowers and engages!

Peer Mentors & Tutors

Northeast State peer mentoring is a program designed to connect first-year students with second year students who have excelled academically. Our mentors are carefully chosen and trained to provide personalized support for each individual mentee, which we believe is key to a student's academic success. Our mentors offer assistance in class registration, soft skills, communicating with faculty, connecting students to campus and community resources, and more. Several of our mentors also serve as peer tutors for writing and statistics. Like mentors, mentor tutors are second year students who have excelled academically with a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and they have received a B in the courses in which they offer tutoring. Mentees will receive beneficial guidance and assistance to successfully complete their first year at Northeast State.
