2023-2024 Honors Council

The Honors Peer Mentors are experienced students in the Honors College who mentor first-year Honors students as they adjust to life at Indiana State University. Each incoming Honors student is networked with a peer mentor, who will offer advice, answer questions, and be a friendly face on campus as you transition into the ISU community. The Honors Peer Mentors are involved in numerous organizations on campus and also with the Honors College, so they know first-hand what it is like to be a motivated student, take Honors classes, live on campus, study abroad, and effectively balance time between school and extra-curricular commitments. 


Honors Housing

Pickerl Hall and Burford Hall are the primary Honors residence halls for incoming Honors students. Honors students are not required to live in Honors housing; however, choosing to reside in an Honors living-learning community gives Honors students opportunities to develop friendships and form study groups with peers from all different majors in the Honors College. Returning Honors students are invited to live on an Honors floor in 500 Wabash, which is located one block away from campus. 500 Wabash gives Honors students entering their second, third, or fourth year at ISU an opportunity to continue living on a floor with other Honors students in an apartment-style residence hall with private bedrooms and fully furnished living rooms and kitchens. Most apartments have four bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, and two bathrooms.

Benefits of living in Honors housing include:

  • Living with and around other Honors students
  • An Honors Resident Assistant (RA) lives on each floor
  • Private bathrooms
  • Central air conditioning
  • Quiet hours on each floor
  • Floor lounges for studying and hanging out
  • Programming space for Honors events
  • A short walk from most classroom buildings
