Tuesday Conversation

TUESDAY CONVERSATION

The entire entering first-year Honors class comes together once a week on Tuesday evenings with Honors peer mentors to have a conversation about a targeted topic. These topics are wide-ranging and include things like diversity and leadership, positioning yourself for graduate school, and succeeding in college. Other topics are more light-hearted, like Zumba, how to read a film, and how the brain learns. This program helps round out and deepen students' Honors experience. It also helps increase first-year engagement through alternative learning community activities that give Honors students a chance to interact outside the formal classroom. Sessions are hosted by Honors peer mentors and are open, in some cases, to upper-class students. First-year Honors students receive credit for attending these sessions, as it makes up a portion of their HON 201 grade. Topics change from year to year based on feedback on each session from students.
