The Honors College offers numerous opportunities for students to travel, either fully or partially funded, both in the United States and internationally. Travel can be an extremely valuable component in broadening one’s worldview and understanding of different cultures, and for that reason we encourage our students to “go away,” and we provide numerous means of funding and opportunities to help make that possible.
How will studying abroad impact my Honors courses?
All students who choose to study abroad have the option to use that experience in place of their Honors Tutorial course requirement. For more information, check out our Tutorial Alternative program.
Honors College Trips
- National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC) Annual Conference
Each year, the Honors College brings a group of Honors students and faculty to this national conference. Students have the opportunity to present their work, participate in the academic discourse of the conference, and meet others from Honors programs from around the country, all while exploring an interesting U.S. city. Past conferences have been held in Chicago, Denver, San Antonio, Philadelphia, Atlanta, St. Louis, Salt Lake City, Washington, D.C., Kansas City, Phoenix, New Orleans, and Seattle!
- Washington D.C. Spring Break Trip
Each Spring Break for the past few years, Honors has taken a group of Honors students to Washington D.C. This trip is an opportunity to explore the rich cultural and historical resources of our nation’s capital, as well as form bonds with other Honors students and even make some connections in the D.C. area. The trip is generally open to all Honors students. The application for the trip opens late in the fall semester.
