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! Reach out to Zach at if you are interested.

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 for more information.
