We encourage you to visit us on campus – this is the very best way to see if the Honors College is a good fit for you. We offer two great recruitment events for high-achieving students each year.
Spring Event - Honors College Discovery Day (Saturday, May 20, 2017)
High school juniors and sophomores are invited to our new event, Honors College Discovery Day, which is designed to serve as an introduction to the Honors College and the University of Arkansas campus. Students attending the event will learn about the benefits of the Honors College, interact with faculty and staff representing departments that routinely work with honors students, and learn what they can start doing this summer to make themselves competitive for fellowship and scholarship applications. Discovery Day will take place on Saturday, May 20, 2017.
UPDATE: We have reached our capacity for Discovery Day and will no longer take new registrations for the event. Information on other ways to visit the Honors College can be found below.
Fall Event - Honors College Convocation (Monday, October 2, 2017)
High school juniors and seniors are invited to Honors College Convocation, which is a great way to learn more about us – you'll meet Honors College students and faculty, hear firsthand about student research and study abroad, and get the latest information on how to assemble a strong application for fellowships and scholarships. This year's Honors College Convocation is tentatively scheduled to take place on Monday, October 2, 2017.
Individual Campus Visits
Can't make Discovery Day or Convocation? No worries: contact the Admissions Office anytime to schedule a campus visit. When scheduling your visit to the University of Arkansas, please be sure to request a meeting with an Honors College representative in Gearhart Hall along with a tour of our residence hall for first-year honors students, Hotz Honors Hall.
Would you like more information on the University of Arkansas, the Honors College or a specific program? The Admissions Office mailing list is your one-stop shop for gathering all of the info you need. And of course, we're glad to visit with you anytime about the Honors College.
We look forward to meeting you!
