The purpose of the Induction Ceremony is to formally welcome new Honors students
to the Honors College. Students, parents and guests will be welcomed by the Dean
of the Honors College and Honors College staff.
The induction ceremony is essentially a pinning ceremony, and new Honors students
will all receive the official WVU Honors College pin to signify and solidify
they are part of the Honors College community.
This is a required event for new first-time freshmen Honors students.
