Honors Orientation

Friday, June 16 – Saturday, June 17

Honors Orientation is an overnight program (for students only) that coincides with our summer Advising Day programs (Friday, June 16, 2017 or Saturday, June 17, 2017). Students will need to register for each event separately.

Registration for 2017 opens on March 1.


What to expect during honors orientation

  • Spending one night in a residence hall with another freshman honors student
  • Helpful items to bring: change of clothes, toiletries, phone charger, etc.
  • What to wear: casual clothes, bring a sweater/jacket/raincoat
  • Get the most out of the experience by participating, meeting new people, exchanging contact information, asking questions

Don’t forget to sign up for a Summer Advising Day as well.

Honors Orientation is being held in conjunction with Summer Advising Day, but registration for these events is separate.
