Honors College Events

The Honors College hosts lectures and events throughout the year. 

See the full Honors College calendar here.

Honors Faculty Fellow Lectures 

The Honors College Faculty Fellows program encourages curricular innovation, giving faculty the opportunity to design new Honors College courses that also fit within the General Education Foundations (GEF) course framework. 

Each fall, the Honors Faculty Fellows give students and WVU community members the opportunity to learn more about a topic related to their Honors Foundations Courses. See the 2022 Honors Faculty Fellows Lecture Series schedule here

Fall Family Weekend - 2021

The Honors College had a wonderful time welcoming our students' families to campus for Fall Family Weekend in Fall 2021! Honors families joined us at the Honors College, as well as the WVU community, for three days Friday, Oct. 15 to Sunday, Oct. 17, 2021, as they had the chance to explore campus, meet professors, go on adventures, and discover what it’s like to be a Mountaineer. The Honors College hosted two virtual events during the weekend: Faculty Lecture and Q&A: "Conservation Ecology: the Anthropocene" and Meet the Honors College Deans, when guests heard from Honors College Dean Ken Blemings and Associate Dean Damien Clement as they discussed Honors College programming and opportunities available specifically to Honors College students.

Honors Foundations Scholars 

While we are, unfortunately, unable to host an in-person ceremony for our May 2022 Honors Foundations Scholars this year due to space constraints of available facilities, we are still excited to celebrate your next steps! 

Please submit some of your favorite photos from your time at WVU and the Honors College, along with a favorite memory and what you plan on doing next, here. We will share your stories and future plans on social media in the days and weeks leading up to commencement. 

Honors EXCEL Scholars and Honors Laureates


The Honors College will be hosting a small in-person ceremony for our May 2022 Honors EXCEL Scholars and Honors Laureates to share your projects and receive your program completion certificate as well as your Honors EXCEL Medallion or Honors Laureate Stole on Thursday, May 12, at 7 p.m. We can't wait to celebrate with you!

Please note: students must meet all graduation requirements and deadlines from the Registrar's Office, as well as their academic college, in order to graduate. Students apply separately to receive Honors College recognition.
