While the COVID19 pandemic has kept our community physically apart, our students have continued their engagement in new, virtual formats. As such, the requirements and expectations of the Honors College have remained largely unchanged for the 2020-2021 academic year. As always, students are expected to attend one [virtual] Honors Events, attend three [virtual] Campus Activities (or complete a Campus Commitment), and complete one approved Service.
Students should still review The Honors College Events Calendar for a list of Honors Events and approved Campus Activities. The calendar is continually updated throughout the semester as new campus activities (in particular) are added.
This academic year, our service requirement has been most noticeably impacted due to our need to remain socially distant and avoid the spread of COVID-19. We have created a Service Guide with details on how to safely complete the service component of the engagement requirement in this extraordinary year.
Finally, as always, once a student completes their engagement (1 Honors Event, 3 Campus Activities, and Service) they must complete the Record of Honors Engagement form in order to officially receive credit. If a form is not completed with accurate information by the semester deadline, then a student must invoke their 1 semester of Engagement Forgiveness if they still have not yet done so. Students who miss two semesters of completing their Engagement requirements face dismissal from The Honors College.
- Fall Engagement Deadline: February 1
