What are Roadrunners?

Roadrunners are Honors students here to offer peer-to-peer support for other Honors students and those interested in Honors. We can offer our student insight on classes and extracurriculars, connect you with resources across campus, or just be a listening ear! 

Talk with a Roadrunner

Whether you have questions or concerns, need support, or just want to chat, come visit us! We’re in room 1056 in the Honors College. While it's not required that you book an appointment to come see us, you may do so at the link below. If you have a preference for which Roadrunner you’d like to meet with, be sure to book within that person’s office hours (also below) and put their name in your booking comments!

Meet the Roadrunners! 

Madison Hogans 


Hello! My name is Madison or Madi (she/her) and I’m happy to be one of your guides to the Honors College. I’m an Albuquerque local working toward a double major, one of which is the Honors Interdisciplinary Liberal Arts (HILA) major. My second major is English, and I’m also minoring in History. If any of these choices sound interesting to you, come talk with me. I’m the communications editor for Scribendi; an editor for Limina: UNM Nonfiction Review; a member of the Association of Jotería Arts, Activism, and Scholarship (AJAAS); and a mentor for the Honors Pathmaker Program. I like reading, writing, playing video games, and finding new music. I’m also an avid fanfiction reader, so if you have a new fic you need to talk about, I’m all ears.

Marcela Johnson 

Marcela_HeadshotGreetings and salutations. I’m Marcela (she/ella), a third-year student majoring in Journalism with a minor in Design for Performance (technical theatre) and a distinction in Honors. I’m the editor in chief for Limina: UNM Nonfiction Review, a beat reporter at the NM Daily Lobo, the communications coordinator for the Honors Pathmaker Program, and the secretary for the Association of Jotería Arts, Activism, and Scholarship (AJAAS). I’m a huge reader and costumer, so I’m always ready to talk about books and design. I’m also a rural student from southern New Mexico, so if the big city is as intimidating to you as it was to me, I’m here!

Raychel Kool 


Hi y’all! My name is Raychel (they/them). I’m a junior majoring in Honors and minoring in American Studies. I’m also the managing editor for Scribendi (an arts and literary magazine), the secretary for Juniper Reimagined: A Queer and Trans Student Alliance, a mentor for the Honors Pathmaker Program, and a staff member for Conceptions Southwest (another arts and literary magazine!). I’m originally from Kentucky, so if you’re an out-of-state student feeling lost, I’d love to talk with you about ways to feel more connected to this amazing community we’re now living in. In my free time, I find joy in listening to audiobooks, making zines, and baking things for my friends—if you have book or recipe recommendations, stop by!

I'm involved with the Association of Jotería Arts, Activism and Scholarship (AJAAS) and El Movimiento Estudiantil Chican@ de Aztlán (MEChA), I’m the digital editor for Scribendi, and I’m a Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellow. Along with being a student, I'm an artist and activist. I’m a first-generation student working toward a Ph.D. to be a professor and continue my research.
