Auxilium Mentoring Program
The Azusa Pacific University Honors Mentoring program, Auxilium*, is a peer-mentoring program for first semester Honors students. Developed to foster a sense of belonging among Honors students, Auxilium offers a safe place for freshmen Honors students to share academic, social, and spiritual challenges. Understanding that Honors students have a unique college experience, Auxilium differs from other freshmen orientation groups offered on campus because it is tailored to the specific challenges that Honors students face.
Each freshman is assigned to a mentor who brings firsthand experience as an Honors student. These mentors act as confidants who can help guide mentees through the pressures of college. They understand the unique commitment made by Honors students and commit themselves to helping incoming students academically as they learn to thrive in their new environment.
