First Year Honors Colloquium

The week before school commences, students accepted into the Honors Program will gather for an Honors Colloquium. This is a great opportunity for students to get to know their peers and to create a strong sense of community. During this week, students will be challenged by some of the best professors at the University and participate in a number of field experiences and cultural events.

Honors Core Courses: The Core Experience

The bonds created during the Colloquium will be strengthened in the fall term of the first and second years, as students will be registered for a designated Honors class. These classes will satisfy University Core requirements and provide students with unique approaches to specific disciplines. The first-year core course is composed solely of Honors students, while the second-year core course includes other high-achieving students in addition to the Honors students.
