Honors Alumni Spain Excursion Summer '19

We are excited to be planning an Honors Alumni excursion to Spain for summer 2019! This trip will be like a mini education abroad experience. It will include pre-trip readings and about a week long course in and around Seville, Spain. The course will focus on La Convivencia, a time in Spanish history where Muslims, Jews, and Christians all lived in relative peace.

The trip will include visits to major cultural sites like the Alcazar and the Great Mosque of Cordoba, Spanish tile making class, tapas tours, wine tastings, and a final group dinner on a rooftop terrace.  Yes, it is going to be amazing.
Questions? Contact Zach (zmartin@temple.edu)

Loungin' w/ Alumni Series

Here at Honors, we are proud of our alumni. You are always showing up, talking about your amazing experience working for the UN or starting your own dance company, and we want the current student to know! If you have been thinking about ways to give back- we would love to host you on campus for the day for our Loungin' w/ Alumni Series. We could have a casual lunch with a few Honorables, put together a panel, or create an evening program, all so that students can find out what it’s like out there- in the real world.  Let us know if you have any ideas or want to participate!

Honors Appalachia

We welcome our graduated Honors students to participate in Honors Appalachia by being adult leaders on the annual student trip. Contact Seth at sethfinck@temple.edu for more information.
