Prepare For the Honors Retreat
The purpose of the Honors Retreat is to welcome new Honors students to campus and connect students to the Honors College mentors, staff, and resources. Students will be welcomed by the Dean of the Honors College, the Honors Student Association, and Honors mentors. This event is required for all incoming first-year students.Visit the Honors Retreat Website
