Honors College Traditions
As an institution that traces its origins to the 1930s, the Honors College at the University of Maine has a great deal of history and tradition. We hope you will explore some of that history and those ongoing traditions here.
The Honors Read
Coinciding with the inauguration of the Honors College in 2002, the establishment of the Honors Read picked up the ten-year tradition of a Class Book at the University of Maine. Chosen each year by a group of Honors students, the Honors Read illustrates the breadth of interests and perspectives embodied in the College.
