Spring 2018- Special Honors Interest Information Sessions for Prospective Honors Scholars

Honors College program features and more will be previewed for high school students interested in the Honors College at special Honors visitation days during the spring 2018 semester. Please mark your calendar for one of these sessions: January 26th, February 16th, March 23rd, or April 20th. We will hold 45 minute info sessions on those Fridays- you can come from 9-9:45 AM or 2-2:45 PM. All sessions will be held in the Randall Library Auditorium (second floor). That will still give you time to have an Admissions Tour that day. No need to schedule this beforehand- please just show up! Read more about honors visits here.
