The Honors College at WVU welcomes future Mountaineers to visit our office, tour Honors Hall, explore our campus, and be a student for a day! The Honors College and the WVU Visitor's Center offer unique visit experiences. Students can participate in the Honors Overnight Experience where they spend the night in Honors Hall and attend classes with a current Honors scholar and participate in a fun, interactive program through the Visitors Center.

Honors Overnight Experience

The Honors Overnight Experience is a fantastic way for curious students to learn about life at West Virginia University. Honors-eligible high school students are invited to spend the night in Honors Hall with a current Honors scholar host. The student and host participate in a variety of campus activities (depending on their interests), eat meals together, and attend University classes in the area of interest specified by the visitor.

Students who participate in the Honors College Overnight Experience will have the opportunity to:

There is no fee to participate in the Honors Overnight Experience. Space is limited and reservations are required. We host students Monday through Thursday  evenings until the following afternoon depending upon the host student's class schedule and other scheduling-related issues. We ask for a two week window to plan your visit, so please contact us early if you are interested!
