Honors Torch Leaders are sophomore, junior, and senior Honors student who serve as mentors for small groups of incoming Honors students.

Mentors communicate regularly with their mentees in early summer and throughout the academic year to foster an environment of support, open communication, and community. 
Mentors and mentees meet on a frequent basis during the semester in weekly informal information sessions (during the reserved Tuesday afternoon block of 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.) in addition to occasional large group events during the Fall semester. Torch Leaders equip first-year students with the knowledge and connections needed to successfully navigate life as a member of the Honors Program and St. Norbert College

Though we don’t recommend abandoning your meal plan, the occasional meal off campus has a host of benefits: it’s an escape the homework, a chance to cement a friendship, and an opportunity to explore De Pere.
