Honors Program Events

Looking for a way to earn Honors credits that's quick, fun, and stress-free? You're in luck! The Honors Program and Student Honors Council put on several social events throughout the year designed to help students participate in the overall Honors community, relax from day-to-day stress, hang out with friends, and advance towards their goal of completing the Honors Program.

Many Honors Program events are also open to the general student population. Interested in the Honors Program, but not sure if it's right for you? Feel free to come by one of our events! You'll get a chance to meet the community and learn more about what our students are like over a board game or a cup of coffee. We hope to see you there!
