First-Year Honors Students: Schedule of Events

We have a lot in store for you and are hoping to give you some important information that will be helpful over the next few days.

First, you and your parents are invited to the Welcome Convocation, located in Williams Auditorium, for remarks from program faculty and staff along with the introduction of the Peer Mentors. Volunteers will assist in directing everyone from the residential halls to the auditorium prior to the beginning of the event.

Afterwards, we will hold the ceremonial “Column Signing” in the North Quad where you can join you Peer Mentor (they will be holding up a sign with their name) and attend the Welcome Picnic together.

At the Welcome Picnic, there will be games, contests and food, of course. Be thinking of a name for your Peer Mentor group, it’ll be important later!

On Friday, August 23rd, is the Honors Fun Day beginning at 10:00 a.m. The events will continue until 2:00 p.m.
