The generous support of Honors College donors and supporters enables our students to participate in a wide range of programs and activities beyond the classroom. The Honors College provides students with an environment that fosters academic excellence as well as encourages students to learn beyond the classroom. First-year Honors students live together in Gateway Hall, forming relationships with students with similar interests that will last for years. Living-Learning experiences provide Honors students the opportunity to explore and learn more about their surrounding community and beyond while fostering a stronger sense of belonging to the Honors College.
Throughout the semester, we will periodically share information about each of the Living-Learning Experiences with details on how to register and participate. Students who wish to participate in these programs will have the opportunity to reserve their space as soon as they receive an e-mail notifying them that the event is open. These experiences are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis and tend to fill to capacity, so students will want to make sure to send their RSVP as soon as possible. Students are permitted to sign up for multiple events. We will also maintain a waiting list for each trip if demand exceeds supply. After completing these forms, students will receive a confirmation e-mail to guarantee the space. Living-Learning experiences for the Fall 2016 semester will be listed below as soon as the programming series is confirmed.
