Honors Opportunities


Much of university learning takes place through programs that are connected with teaching, but not actually in the classroom. Honors students have the unique chance to engage with deans, faculty, and other students through our SASHP Programs and Leadership & Engagement opportunities.


SASHP Programs

Summer Reading Program

The SASHP Summer Reading Program engages new SASHP students with a thought-provoking book selected by staff, faculty, and fellow students. The SASHP then hosts a lecture and book-signing with the author at the beginning of each fall semester for all new Honors students. Students can get involved by joining the Summer Reading Selection Committee to help pick out future summer reading books.

Honors Housing

All SAS Honors students are eligible to live in Honors Housing located on each of Rutgers four campuses.

Global Experiences

Honors Global Experiences take the classroom abroad with international, interdisciplinary courses led by Honors faculty and staff.

Tea with the Dean

Faculty Mentor Program

The SASHP Faculty Mentor Program matches new Honors students with a faculty member who provides valuable guidance and mentorship during their first year at Rutgers.

Tutoring Program

Our SASHP Tutoring Program is the only source of free one-on-one tutoring at Rutgers University! Students are paired with a volunteer Honors student who will help them to improve academically in one of various subject areas.

Peer Mentor Program

First-year students are encouraged to participate in our Peer Mentor Program, where they are connected with a current SASHP student mentor. Mentors help first-year students to navigate Rutgers, college life, and the SASHP and encourage their mentee to participate in the various events hosted by the Peer Mentor Program.

Honors Summer Shadow Experience

Looking for real world experience? Each summer, the SASHP hosts its Honors Summer Shadow Experience, where students are given the opportunity to shadow an Honors Program alumnus at their workplace.

Leadership & Engagement

Artists Collective

The Artists Collective is a collaborative group for Honors student artists to fuse academics and the arts through various creative endeavors. The Artists Collective hosts a variety of events for students to experience and express themselves through art.

Honors Ambassadors

Honors Ambassadors are student guides to all things SASHP. These student representatives are essential to recruiting prospective students to the SAS Honors Program by providing guidance and support during our spring Scholars Days.

Media Team

Have you heard? The SASHP Media Team is our source for all Honors Program news and media. Students are encouraged to contribute to one of our various SASHP media sources, including our blog and newsletter, to help get the word out about the SAS Honors Program and its students.

SASHP Peer Mentors & Programming Board

Our SASHP Peer Mentors are a familiar face and friend to first-year Honors students at Rutgers. Our mentors provide guidance, advice, and resources to new students throughout their first year at Rutgers. Peer Mentors can also get involved by joining our Peer Mentor Programming Board to assist with planning events for the academic year.

SASHP Tutors

SASHP Tutors provide free one-on-one tutoring to both honors and non-honors students at Rutgers. Tutors volunteer to assist with a subject of their choice and gain valuable leadership and academic experience.
