Events Calendar

The Honors College sponsors a number of events throughout the academic year. The Honors Community Picnic is held each year during move-in to provide first-year students an opportunity to engage with peers, faculty, staff, and alumni prior to the start of the academic term. The Guest of Honor University/Artist Lecture Series brings one speaker to campus each semester to have engaging discussions with students about critical issues or artistic works. The Senior Honors Luncheon is held annually each spring to recognize the successes of our graduates.
