Years 1 & 2

First Year Honors Colloquium

The week before school commences, thirty students accepted into the Honors Program will gather for an Honors Colloquium. This will be 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 freshman and sophomore 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 freshman core course is composed solely of freshmen Honors students, while the sophomore core course includes other high-achieving students in addition to the sophomore Honors students.
