Honors College Convocation

Prospective student and her mother visit with professor.

Honors College Convocation is a great chance for high school juniors and seniors to explore the exceptional opportunities available to students through the Honors College, including special honors classes that focus on big issues and grants for study abroad and undergraduate research.

You will hear from professors and staff members who are committed to mentoring students for academic success, and current honors students will share study abroad and research stories, as well as their plans for life after graduating with honors from the University of Arkansas.

Interested in competing for Honors College fellowships and academic scholarships? Convocation is the place to find out how, with an informative session on creating personal statements and résumés for highly competitive applications.

The day also includes an optional tour of our two primary facilities, Hotz Honors Hall and Gearhart Hall. Hotz is a first-year residence hall for honors students, while Gearhart is our new administration building that includes ample space for student learning.

Convocation will take place Monday, September 26, 2016.
