Loyd Mentors and Peer Leaders serve as an integral part of the experience of Loyd residents.  By providing overall personal and academic support and resources for first year students, the Loyd Mentors will help ensure that our first year students will have a successful year.


Loyd Mentors

Loyd Mentors aid in the areas of academic support, leadership and involvement, social engagement & interaction, and personal safety and responsibility. Loyd Mentors provide an additional level of support for students to get the assistance they may need. Each first year resident gets up to two Loyd Mentors - one of which may be your Mustang Corral Mentor as well!

Honors Mentors

Sophi Farid & Ceci Weigman

The goal of the Honors Mentors is to build relationships with first-year Honors students and strengthen the overall Honors community among all the University Honors Program (UHP) residents in each Residential Commons. From the beginning of the school year, Honors Mentors will take an active role in welcoming the Honors residents in their Commons. They will continue to meet informally with the Honors students, plan programs in their Commons, serve as a resource, and encourage participation in UHP events external to their Commons.
