Honors College

Dean's Update:

    The Honors College is planning 6 great cross-cultural trips for you in the spring. During spring break one group will travel to the Dominican Republic while a second will journey to Puerto Rico.  These trips will provide opportunities for service as well as cultural encounters.


    Four of our spring course sections will have 10 day to 2 week international components.  These trips, to  England/Paris, Costa Rica, Germany and China will leave the day after final exam week in May.  They are actually part of the course curriculum, required for students registered in those sections.


    We will have much more information during the fall semester but I can tell you that if you go on one of these trips, you will receive scholarship funds to help defray costs.  You will learn, have fun and earn a wonderful line for your resume.  Save now and pay attention to the Newsletter because spots go more quickly than you can imagine.

Join us as you share in the tradition of eating the Dean's grilled burgers, canoeing along the waterway, and relaxing in the shade. It will be an afternoon filled with fun, sun, and free food!
