    • General Meetings are held once each month, usually on the second Tuesday at 12:30 pm. Lunch is typically provided while students receive relevant updates from the Honors Association regarding upcoming activities, have a chance to “talk back” with the Honors Director, and have a chance to connect with their Honors cohort.

  • Winter Feast and Spring Fling
    • The Honors Association hosts these events at the end of the fall and spring semesters, respectively, to celebrate student accomplishments over the course of the semester and to unwind together in the lead-up to finals week.
