Honors Colloquium

[From Latin: com+loqui: "To talk together."]

"Colloquium" is Latin for dialogue or conversation. The Honors Colloquium is an opportunity for students to meet and talk with local, regional, and national leaders and scholars about topics that relate to the semester's courses. The Honors Colloquium series may also include museum trips, service projects, productions, and other leadership and learning activities.

Typically there are four colloquia per semester, and honors students are required to attend all of them to remain in good standing with the Honors Program.

Students who miss any colloquium event must notify a member of the honors staff (either Dr. Streufert or Mr. Muenks) and make arrangements for attending a make-up event.
