Advising and Mentoring

"In the Honors College we distinguish between advising and mentoring, although both are equally important. Advising is selecting the right courses. Mentoring is trying to help students put themselves in the best place to empower them to achieve their long-term career goals."
Director of Academic Advising, Dr. Bryan Ganaway

Personalized Mentoring

Every student in the Honors College has an assigned Honors faculty advisor throughout their time at CofC. These mentors work one-on-one with students to provide them with personalized guidance and support. Your Honors advisor is there to help you with...

  • Short- and long-term plans that align with your specific goals and ambitions
  • Choices about academic programs, including majors and minors
  • Course selection and the Honors College curriculum
  • Decisions about academic and professional opportunities like internships, research positions, and networking
  • Post-grad applications for jobs, fellowships, graduate schools, and more

Honors College faculty advisors aren’t just members of the Honors College team. They’re highly skilled members of the College’s academic community. They represent departments from across all six academic schools, and are renowned experts in everything from RNA-proteins to entrepreneurship to Romanesque art.
