Speaker Series

The Honors program hosts a number of different speakers series designed to put Honors students in touch with exciting leaders and thinkers from the worlds of the arts, sciences, medicine, business, and academia. Typically, when the Honors program underwrites a visiting speaker, it arranges a separate meeting of the speaker with a class or group of honors students in addition to hosting a lecture for the larger campus community.

Honors also offers a variety of alternative, informal learning opportunities for students as a way of exposing them to topics they might not encounter in the course of their formal studies and as a way of allowing students to meet and talk with professors in a setting that is conducive to relaxed conversation.
