Get Involved

The complete honors experience is as much about enrichment outside of the classroom as it is about experiences inside the classroom. By participating in some of the many honors activities available, you will:

  • find common bonds with other students from class years and majors
  • connect on a more personal level with UC faculty and staff
  • explore ideas related to leadership, global studies, community engagement, research and creative arts and many interdisciplinary topics
  • make college memories to last a lifetime
  • have a good time (and sometimes enjoy free food)!
